Walking Close to the Severn near Worcester

Walking Close to the Severn near Worcester

by: Clive Brown
One of a range of 'no frills' local walking guide booklets which admirably achieve their objective of getting you out in the countryside amongst beautiful scenery on carefully chosen routes full of interest. The directions are simple and detailed and include clear pencil drawn sketch maps.

This guide describes ten varied and interesting circular routes close to the rivers Severn and Teme near Worcester. The walks are between 4 and 7.5 miles in length. One walk visits Lower Broadheath, the birthplace of the composer Edward Elgar. The house is now a museum dedicated to his life and music. The paths around the village must have been very familiar to him as he grew up. The water meadows around the confluence of the Teme and Severn were the location of the battle of Worcester in 1651 where Charles II was heavily defeated by Oliver Cromwell. The area is within sight of the Ketch viewpoint visited on one of the walks.
