*Worcestershire Becon

After the gales on Monday and the rain on Thursday, today was positively benign. Worcestershire Beacon is quite a hill to climb and takes its toll on batteries.  Unfortunately those on one scooter gave up but our team of volunteers pushed pulled and towed it to safety.    Great views all the way up and […]

After a coffee stop to let the motors and walkers cool down there was one final rocky climb before the going became easier. After passing the King […]

*Bredon Hill from Kemerton

Were we all mad? The remnants of Hurricane Ophelia were about to hit us with winds of up to 50 mph expected and yet we were heading up to the summit of Bredon Hill. Situated in Worcestershire on the side of the Severn Valley, the southwesterly winds had nothing to stop them from sweeping us […]

*New Forest & Ridgeway Tours

Although we re-reccied the route only 7 days before the ramble we didn’t know the road was going to be dug up.  Fortunately, we were able to go along the other side of the hedge and then the workers made a gap in it for us to pass through.  What an adventure. See more of […]
