Some routes exploring villages and areas of historic interest; Bob shares his extensive local knowledge to enhance your experience. The rivers play an important part in shaping the area and several walks include sections passing along their banks and to the settlements connected to them.

Beginning in the spa town of Great Malvern, it takes walkers over the Malvern Hills via Knightwick to reach the pretty village of Martley. Next it follows highs and lows in the Teme valley to reach Tenbury Wells "the little town in the orchard", before an intriguing journey on the opposite side of the Teme via Mamble and Rock to the Georgian town of Bewdley.

The last section leads inevitably across country to the Malvern Hills and finally over the Herefordshire and Worcestershire Beacons back to the starting point in Great Malvern.
