Malvern Walkpast - Saturday 6th July

The Malvern Hills are always a popular for walking, and the third in our Walkpast series will be here on the afternoon Saturday 6th July. Starting from The Wyche, the 4 mile walk will go along the famous Shire Ditch into parkland. Walking along ancient holloways through a wooded landscape dotted with quarries, you will see a variety of archaeological features and visit some very well preserved limekilns.
Aisling Nash, who'll be leading the walk, said, "The Malverns is a really popular place for walks, but people don't always recognise or understand the archaeology that they walk past, so this is a great opportunity to discover more."


Places are limited and need to be booked in advance. Please email hiveadminteam@worcestershire.gov.uk or ring 01905 765576 to reserve your place, or e-mail explorethepast@worcestershire.gov.uk if you'd like to ask any questions about the walk.

The event is also part of the Geofest, Highlighting and celebrating the Abberley and Malvern Hills Geopark. For more details about other events please visit http://www.earthheritagetrust.org/pub/wp-content/uploads/GeoFest-2013-programme-pdf-download.pdf
