Bredon Hill (West)

Landscape & Geology Trail
Bredon Hill, imposing and slab-like, stands sentinel above the valley of the River Avon in south Worcestershire. Famous for its man-made earthworks, surrounded by a string of beautiful villages, popularised by the poetry of A. E. Houseman and the books of Fred Archer, the hill is criss-crossed by well marked footpaths which makes it a favourite spot for walkers and picnickers alike.

This trail will show how geology and the forces of nature have moulded the hill, how they help explain the glorious views and how they are responsible for a number of curiosities for which the hill is famous. At the highest point there are good picnicking sites.

This is a circular walking trail of 5 miles, which takes four to five hours to complete.
