Saturday, September 30, 2017

A favourite stomping ground for the Wayfarers, Malvern Hills is the destination for our first 'official' walk of the term! Once signed up for the trip, you will receive an email before the day with more information about meeting times, etc.

The Malverns are (relatively) local to the University, and are definitely one of the best nearby hiking locations; described as "a mountain range in miniature". We will be taking our usual circular route of starting at Colwall station and going along the entire ridge -- with the trig point of Worcestershire Beacon being our goal. We will inevitably arrive at a local pub, and finally travelling back to Brum.

We hope to see all Wayfarers old and new on the day.

What to bring:

  • Sturdy, comfortable walking shoes (that you don't mind getting muddy)
  • Lightweight trousers (definitely not jeans!)
  • Jumper and/or other layers
  • Waterproof coat and trousers
  • Packed lunch and water
  • Cash for emergencies
  • Rucksack to carry it all in
