Guided Walking Holidays - The Malvern Hills Walk the undulating Malvern Hills and youre exploring geological history. These ancient landscapes beckon you on to uncover how their scenic splendour was created. The Geopark Way meanders for 109 miles from Bridgnorth to Gloucester through landscapes 700 million years in the making. We walk south, covering around 40 miles of the trail in four ten-mile sections of spectacular countryside through the Abberley and Malvern Hills Geopark from Knightwick to Bromsberrow. We encounter sites of geological importance that illustrate the forces that have shaped our world. The rocks on the Malvern Hills are aged between the Silurian and Precambrian periods. The hills themselves rise from the Severn Valley plain and were formed during the Silurian period (420 million years ago).The Precambrian granite rocks are the oldest to be found in England. Towards the end of our route in the Leadon Valley, solid rock disappears from view; the huge glaciers melting at the end of the Ice Age released immense volumes of water which softened the lines of the landscape. The trail offers varied walking alongside rivers, through forests, along ridges and€ross valley floors with impressive views along the way. Passing through an assortment of habitats you may encounter a wide variety of wildlife. Quaint villages and towns along the route add further interest. These holidays are not intended as a geological field course, but an opportunity to explore the landscape with good walks visiting interesting sites.
