Saturday 24th Oct. (17 miles) Worcestershire Way (1) Meet at 9.30am at Dog Lane car park, Bewdley from where we will embark on walking the first half of the Worcestershire Way to The Admiral Rodney pub in Berrow Green. I anticipate that we will finish at approximately 5.00pm but parents will always find a warm welcome in the pub if they have to wait for us to finish.
Sunday 25th Oct. (15 miles) Worcestershire Way (2) Meet at the Admiral Rodney, Berrow Green, at 10.00am for the second leg of the walk, finishing at the Red Lion, just above the main street in the centre of Malvern. The finish time is likely to be nearer to 4.00pm. but not before. Parents can park on the main street and walk up to the Red Lion (signposted St Anne’s Well) and enjoy refreshment while they wait.
Monday 26th Oct. (12 miles) The Long Mynd Meet at school at 8.00am. Once gathered a minibus will take us to the Long Mynd on Shropshire for a circular walk, returning to school by 6.30pm.
Tuesday 27th Oct. (19 miles) Three Castles Way (Skenfrith, White castle & Grosmont) This could be the most testing day with a 19 mile walk following the route of the Three Castles Way in Herefordshire. Meet at school at 8.00am for the minibus journey to Skenfrith. The challenge will not only be the distance and the terrain but also completing the distance in daylight. We will probably return to school at about 7.00pm
For all days you will need:
Full walking kit – base layers and Fleece type layer
Hat and gloves
Spare warm layer
A day sack
Basic first aid kit (I will be carrying a more comprehensive one)
Mobile phone to give parents more accurate timings for the ending of each day.
By the end of 4 days you will have walked approx. 63 miles with lots of ups and downs.
I hope to be able to organise the Old Chapel four days during the February half term.
Sunday 3rd January 2016 – A Malvern Rambler
Meet at 10.00am at the British Camp car park, opposite the Malvern Hills Hotel for a New Year ramble over the southern third of the Malvern Hills. This will be as much a social occasion as a physical one as there will be no set route. If any parents would like to join us for this walk to work off the excesses of the festive season they are more than welcome. I anticipate that we would be finished by 3.00pm, possibly earlier if the weather is particularly bad, but you will need to bring with you a packed lunch, drink, warm clothing and waterproofs.
