Exploring Bredon Hill (Part 2)

Wednesday 28th December 2016

With one ascent already behind me on this walk, I knew that I still had some climbing to do before I would reach the desired summit of Bredon Hill.

Having lost height en route to the village of Bredon’s Norton, that time was about to come.

Exploring Bredon Hill (Part 1)

Wednesday 28th December 2016

Last night, I sat down at my computer to begin writing this walk. While in the process of editing and re-arranging my selection of photos, I managed to somehow ‘lose’ said photos (possibly with a keyboard shortcut). They weren’t anywhere to be found; not even in the Recycle Bin.

I hadn’t already uploaded them to Facebook either.

This was only valid until the end of September and a few properties were excluded from the deal. We discussed a few ideas over where to go and mostly came up with a list of places that one of us had already been to… In the end, we settled upon a trip to Worcestershire to visit Croome.

Malvern Hills – July 2016 (Part 2)

Sunday 31st July 2016

At the end of Part 1, I’d reached what was effectively the ‘pinnacle’ in my sixteen-mile loop around the Malvern Hills.

Now, at a road bend between Upper and Lower Wyche, I was preparing for a triumphant return along the tops of hills I had yet to discover.
