The Malvern Hills are a string of rounded summits stretching some 10km that are clearly visible from the M5 Motorway. Running in a line from north to south they form a ridge with the Worcestershire Beacon the highest summit (1394ft / 425m).
We parked in a pay and display carpark in a disused quarry a few hundred metres down the hill towards the A449 in the village of Upper Wyche. We then walked up to the Worcestershire Beacon (not that the view was great - as you can see the clouds had come down and it had started to rain and then we walked around the northern end of the hills before heading home!
I really enjoyed the walk, although the girls got cold and wet! I would love to come back and explore some more of these lovely hills!
