MALVERN HILLS SUNSET CHARITY WALK

£10.00

Saturday November 19th 2022

Working in partnership with Chris Tarratt from Get Outdoors, we are delighted to offer this amazing 12-mile hike in the Malvern Hills, all in the name of charity.

  • 50% of the fee will be donated to Oxford-based SeeSaw and we encourage everyone to set up a fundraising page to support them even more! E.g. Justgiving. This charity provides support for children, young people and their families in Oxfordshire when they have been bereaved or when somebody close to them is terminally ill.
  • It is no surprise the Malverns have been designated as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. This 12-mile trek up and down a wonderful range of hills has spectacular views over the Cotswolds one way; the Black Mountains and Brecon Beacons into Wales the other.
    • 11:30 am meet; 6 pm finish; 12mile walk.
    • Waterproofs, walking boots and packed lunch are essential.
    • Dogs welcome.
    • See the below tabs for the full itinerary.

Starting at the southern end of the Malverns range, we climb over Swinyard Hill, Hangman's Hill and Millennium Hill to the Herefordshire Beacon, the site of the British Camp, an Iron Age hill fort. This site is thought to date back before the Common Era and has been extended subsequently by a medieval castle. Ancient folklore has it that this is where the British chieftain Caractacus made his last stand against the Romans. The extensive earthworks remain clearly visible today and determine the shape of the hill.

We carry on to climb Black Hill, Pinnacle Hill and Jubilee Hill before dropping down to cross the Wyche Cutting, a mountain pass through the hills used in prehistoric times as part of the salt route from Droitwich to South Wales.

Continuing our undulating route, on which we take in almost the entire length of the hill range, we finally ascend a long slow climb to the top of Summer Hill, where the spectacular plinth of the Worcestershire Beacon (1,395ft) sits at the Malvern Hill's highest point and our final destination.

We then retrace our steps all the way back to Swinyard.

Note: Your details will be forwarded to Chris from Get Outdoors, and he will communicate with you for the start time, location etc.
