Walking Group

We meet on the 4th Monday in the month from 10.00-4.00pm at various locations.

Our walks are between 4 1/2 and 6 miles and take place on the last Monday in every month. A list of the walks is also posted in the Newsletter.

We aim to encourage and promote an interest in walking, whilst enjoying the company of fellow members, with the option of a pub lunch where possible.

Members are encouraged to take part in organising our programme and to lead walks if they can. The activities of the Walking Group can be expanded provided that there is sufficient interest.

It has been decided that group members wishing to join a walk should telephone or contact the leader before the walk.

Start time is 10 am unless otherwise stated.

We will meet at the Harvester Timberdine before 10 o’clock for a 5 mile walk around the outskirts of Worcester before returning to the pub for an optional lunch.

There are one or two fields to cross but most of the paths are dry and there is a minimum of height to be climbed. An easy walk with some interesting corners of the city to discover.

27 February 2017 Leader Mike Hayes— michaelhayes1001@gmail.com –
PLEASE NOTE : MEET at Lyppard Grange Pub WR 4 0DZ at 9.45 for a 10.00 start. ( Not the Country Park). Lunch also now at The Lyppard Grange. It’s a 10am walk around and through Warnden Villages. Doesn’t sound very interesting , but it is! It takes in a barn on Staddle stones, Warden Church, which is unusual, and a section of the Birmingham/Worcester canal. It is a good winter walk as it is very unlikely to be muddy under foot.

<Monday 24th April – Leader Mikce Hayes. Our walk starts from the Duke of York pub at Tewkesbury Road, Berrow WR13 6JQ. Take the road from Malvern and after passing through Welland and Birtsmorton (Do not turn off the road when you see the sign for Birtsmorton)you will arrive at Rye Cross Crossroads. Turn left and after about 200m the road bends sharply to the right. The pub is on the bend. The walk is about 6 miles but is very easy going with no major hills and very few stiles (possibly 1). The walk crosses over the Bromsberrow estate and along the lower slopes of the sought end of the hill. The terrain is fields and quiet lanes.
