50 Walks in Herefordshire and Worcestershire

50 Walks in Herefordshire and Worcestershire

by: Nick Reynolds
Worcestershire is a county of generally rolling hills, save for the flat and fruity Vale of Evesham in the east and the prominent spine of the Malvern Hills in the west. Nearly all of the land is worked in some way; arable farming predominates (oilseed rape, cereals and potatoes), but there are concentrated areas of specific land use such as market gardening and plum growing.

In Herefordshire the land is hillier, abutting in the west with the Black Mountains ridge that defines the border with Wales. Crops are important here but there are more green fields (for grazing, silage or hay), because this is livestock country with plenty of cattle and even more sheep. Also, you cannot walk far in this county without seeing an apple orchard.

This guide explores some of the best of these counties countryside. It includes 50 themed walks of between 2 and 10 miles, each with fascinating background reading. There are clear, easy-to-follow route descriptions and full colour detailed sketch maps for every walk. Each walk chapter is prefaced by a practical information panel and then a section with interesting information on what to look out for during the walk. Details of places to eat and drink are provided, including guidance for dog owners on where to walk and dog-friendly establishments.
