I will be walking in an anti-clockwise loop taking in the full length of the Malverns, parts of the Worcester Way, the Herefordshire Trail, the Black & White Village Trail, Offa’s Dyke Path and the Wye Valley Walk.

15 legs over 15 days, each 10 miles – give or take a few miles!

I’ll be starting at All Saints Hollybush, the little church at the southern end of the Malvern Hills where my maternal grandparents & great grandparents are buried and where I am Associate Priest.

Some bits are quite flat, others not so much!

I’ll then walk the length of the Malvern Hill, moving on to Bromyard, Leominster and to All Saints, Monkland, where my paternal grandparents are buried.

I will then head for Kington, then to Hay-on-Wye, up and over Hay Bluff to the Church of St Mary the Virgin, Capel-y-ffin, where my great uncle Clarence is buried.

I will then head for home via Monmouth, along the Wye Valley (where on the opposite bank at Whitchurch is the Church of St Dubricious where I got married), Ross-on-Wye (passing close to my parents’ home) and Dymock, and thence, via Bromsberrow, return to All Saints, Hollybush.
