The Malvern Hills have been described as a mountain range in miniature, the eight mile ridge containing some of the oldest rocks in Britain, their craggy outline giving the impression of uplands further west. They were good enough for Mallory to come and walk in preparation for Everest whilst staying with colleagues at Malvern College. Today you can enjoy over 4500 acres of open countryside climbing to the highest point at Worcestershire Beacon or enjoying the quiet ramblings along the wooded slopes.
If you want to know more about what you can do in the area or how you can help look after it or learn about the wildlife then what better way than to browse through the official site of the organisation responsible for the Malvern Hills and Commons.
