Description

Grade:        Moderate with 2 steep hills. 10 miles. Out all day so bring packed lunch and drinks.

Start Point: The Garden Tea Rooms. Witley Court Drive, Great Witley, Worcester WR6 6JT.        

                     www.witleytearooms.co.uk (not the car park for Witley Court)

 

Description: Starting at Witley tearooms and church we head out over fields and up through the Abberley Hills travelling along wooded paths. Passing the monumental clock tower of Abberley School we continue the accent onto the Worcestershire Way where we are rewarded with spectacular views before making our way back to Great Witley over an ancient hill fort and along quiet lanes. The tearooms serve delicious homemade cakes and hopefully we can view the inside of Britain's finest baroque church.

Directions: Junction 5 - M5 take A38 towards Droitwich, take the slip road to Ombersley stay on the A4133 until you come to a T junction. Turn right onto the A443 towards Tenbury. Before you reach Great Witley you will see a gate house on the left with a sign “private road” (privately maintained!). Drive up this bumpy road past the ruins of the court and park in the car park. If you miss this first gate house, you will then see brown signs for Witley Court. DO NOT go into this car park, carry on for 1/3 mile you will see signs on the left by another gate house for tea rooms and church (entrance opposite the road sign B4197) Turn left down the bumpy road until you reach the car park. (Journey is 12 miles from Jnc 5)

Leader: Ruth E.
