Erewash Ramblers

The Malverns - 4 June 2016

Around 40 members gathered for a trip to the Malverns bright and early on a Saturday morning. Unfortunately, the bus turned up on time but then broke down, so we had almost 2 hours to wait in Ilkeston before we set off to the Worcestershire/Herefordshire border.

Two separate walks had been planned, though the longer walk had to be cut short due to the delays. The short walk went up to the Herefordshire Beacon and around the nearby reservoir, while the longer walk went north along the ridge to the Worcestershire Beacon before dropping down into Great Malvern.

Despite the delays, it was an excellent day, and the scenery is pretty stunning! Photographs by Sara Ashmead, Jenny Throup, and Robert Mee.

The group split pretty much in half, and this is a photo of those on the “short walk”, led by Joyce Mold, having reached a vantage point in Herefordshire.
