The Malvern Hills have been described as a mountain range in miniature, the eight mile ridge containing some of the oldest rocks in Britain, their craggy outline giving the impression of uplands further west. They were good enough for Mallory to come and walk in preparation for Everest whilst staying with colleagues at Malvern College. Today you can enjoy over 3000 acres of open countryside climbing to the highest point at Worcestershire Beacon or enjoying the quiet ramblings along the wooded slopes.
