Running through the Abberley and Malvern Hills Geopark is the Geopark Way; a long distance walking trail that highlights the geology and landscape found within the Geopark. The trail guide takes you along the route of the trail, interpreting the geology and landscape seen. Attention is also paid to how both man and nature have utilised, and have been influenced by, the local geology and landscape. It does this by looking at industrial archaeology, historical, recreational and wildlife sites along the trail. To purchase individual guides contact eht@worc.ac.uk.
