Explore the Worcestershire countryside by foot, through woodland, hilly ranges and sleepy villages.
Abberley Circular Walk
Forming part of the Worcestershire Way, this five-mile circular walk passes along country lanes and woodland paths, through fields and pastures, before climbing Abberley Hill. At the top of the hill, take in the panoramic views of the surrounding countryside, with the Abberley Clock Tower rising above the trees. The terrain can be quite challenging in places, with steep ascents up the hill and slippery patches after rainfall, so be sure to wear sturdy footwear.
