The Geopark Way

The aims of the Geopark Way project were to establish a long distance Landscape and Geology walking trails

The Geopark Way project was conceived from the aspiration to highlight geology

The project was conceived from the aspiration to highlight geology, landscape and associated heritage within the Abberley and Malvern Hills Geopark and to make these accessible to all.

In 2006 the project commenced, supported under the England Rural Development Programme by the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs and the European Agricultural Guidance and Guarantee Fund. Together, Gloucestershire Geology Trust and the Earth Heritage Trust researched a suitable trail route through the Geopark; one which would allow the geological story of the Geopark to be told and also be a pleasant, enjoyable walk. Later the trail guide was written.

Throughout the life of the project many obstacles had to be overcome. Financial aid from Advantage West Midlands helped us navigate our way around the setbacks caused by the floods of 2007. The time, support and knowledge offered by community groups and organisations were of great help in allowing this unique trail and project to be realised,
