Geocaches - Herefordshire is not known for its caches
Every year there is a walking day when you know that Spring is on its way. Today, was that day.
Wasn't sure whether I would be walking today. Last night was a drink with Fast Pint Arm Bob. When I awoke and saw the light streaming through the windows, there was no choice. What a fantastic day.
Today's walk is from www.walkingworld.com and just over the border in herefordshire. This walk alone has justified the subscription cost for another year. It is a stunner.
Lovely drive through the best parts of Worcestershire, spying a place to take a nice photo of Malvern for the way back. Park up in the village of Whitbourne. The walk suggests parking at the pub and truth, there would have been no problem. Another country pub bites the dust. But don't worry, there is a local shop for local people selling pork pies and pop next door.
Over a stile and into the countryside.

First part of the walk is through farmland, aiming to get to Poswick Lodge where we pick up the first hightlight of the walk. The Sapey Valley is great walking country, secluded, little stream that we criss cross, couple of isolated cottages straight out of fairy tales and bordered by Limekiln Coppice. It is stunning and with the weather, makes you feel all is well with world. This stretch is that good that you won't mind following it on the return journey back.
|Bridge or in the Water?|
|Ted, to his mates.|
Tedstone Delamere is domintated by the court. A quite magnificant house with stunning views over Malvern. As I walk past, there is a sign for the footpath down to St James Chapel in the grounds. I have a walk down. Photos are on Everytrail.
|Congratulations, its twins.|
|You can lead a cow to water|
|Face the camera, dog.|
Just need the clocks to go forward now.
|Worcestershire, in all its glory. My head blocking Malvern|
