Geopark Way Walking Guidebook

Geopark Way Walking Guidebook

by: Earth Heritage Trust
Winding its way for 109 miles from Bridgnorth to Gloucester, along the line of the Abberley and Malvern Hills, the Geopark Way passes through delightful countryside as it explores 700 million years of the Earth's history.

The trail offers varied walking alongside rivers, through forests, along ridges and across heathlands. Passing through an array of habitats there is a diversity of wildlife adding to the experience, with majestic views to enjoy. Quaint villages and towns populate the route, giving historical and cultural elements to explore as well.

Conveniently divided into comfortable individual day walks, each of the 17 sections of the trail explores the geology and landscape seen along the route. A fine range of rocks and fossils will be seen, together with intriguing traces of the Ice Age. The sections are as follows:
Bridgnorth to Dudmaston
Dudmaston to Highley
Highley to Kinlet
Kinlet to Bewdley
Bewdley to Larford Lake
Larford Lake to Abberley
Abberley to Martley
Martley to Alfrick

The book includes an introduction to the area and lots of geological information throughout including many colour photographs, maps and diagrams. The route description text includes sketch maps, but we would recommend OS Explorer maps for a more detailed picture of the countryside and to assist with navigation.
