This circular walk, although a fair distance from Malvern, was still mostly in the Malvern District Council area, only occasionally going into Herefordshire at Middleton-on-the-Hill and Little Hereford.
A walk from Tenbury Wells
Starting at the market town of Tenbury Wells,
Tenbury High Street
passing the Church of St Mary in Tenbury Wells
the walk stretched to 12.3 miles, giving excellent views of Titterstone Clee Hill and the surrounding countryside.
About 1.5 miles from Tenbury, our group passed a wholesale tree nursery with a very descriptive sign.
On towards Berrington, we were never far from the River Teme. This fly fisherman, reeling in a trout, found a way to keep his feet cool on a rare warm day.
The Titterstone Clee Hill was seen for most of the way and this was a typical view, although these sheep didn't seem to notice
We continued on through Berrington until, after crossing a narrow footbridge over the River Teme,
we arrived at Little Hereford Church to stop for a short coffee break.
Our journey then took us towards Middleton-on-the-Hill, visiting the church where we stopped for lunch.
From here we started the return journey to take us through Berrington Green, passing a herd of alpacas . .
and a pretty mill-pond . .
before returning to Tenbury to cross its 16th century bridge
and see the famous ‘pump rooms’.
and the finish of a superb walk.
