Bredon Hill

Description

Sign-ups for this trip start on the 27th Feb, Harvey Milk Room at 12.30.

For our final day trip of the term, the Wayfarers will be revisiting somewhere they've not been for a few years: Bredon Hill.

Bredon Hill stands at 299m (257m prominence) above the Vale of Evesham, Warwickshire. At its summit once lay the Iron Age hill fort Kemerton Camp. Furthermore, the hill is the subject of a poem in A.E. Housman's 1896 anthology:

The bells they sound on Bredon, And still the steeples hum, "Come all to church, good people." O noisy bells, be dumb; I hear you, I will come.

This should be a quiet, but pleasant, walk for all Wayfarers to enjoy a walk and good chat on. Please do join us!

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
