This figure of 8 walk  is approximately 6 miles long. We use the well maintained paths of the Malvern Hills Starting at British Camp we descend past the Reservoir on a well surfaced lane to walk along pasture before ascending to Gullet Wood and on to Midsummer Hill for our elevenses stop. Descending from there through open hillside pasture we pass Hollybush quarry and descend onto a gravel track which gradually takes back onto the open hill side for our lunch stop either near Clutter's Cave or at the top of British Camp. After lunch the group will split and after the long walkers have left, Helen will lead the short walkers down off the steep hill side of British Camp back to the carpark.
