Description:

Annual walk starting at Witley tearooms and church. We head out over fields and up through the Abberley Hills travelling along wooded paths. Passing the monumental clock tower of Abberley School we continue the accent onto the Worcestershire Way where we are rewarded with spectacular views before making our way back to Great Witley over an ancient hill fort and along quiet lanes. The tearooms serve delicious homemade cakes and hopefully we can view the inside of Britain's finest baroque church. Please bring lunch and plenty of drinks.
