Šta ćete raditi

Legendary author J.R.R. Tolkien was a frequent visitor to the Malvern Hills and its' distinctive landscape inspired many features of Middle Earth, including the Giant's Cave from the Hobbit which is the main attraction of the new 10-mile Tolkien Trail.

Leaving our vehicles by Chase End Hill at the southern end of the Malverns, we'll head up and over its' summit before weaving our way through the tiny hamlet of Whiteleaved Oak named after a sacred tree where 3 county borders meet at the proposed centre of author John Michell's Great Decagon.

Next we'll climb the twin peaks of Ragged Stone Hill and discover the legendary curse afflicting those caught in its shadow before heading up to the impressive Obelisk that towers over the Eastnor Castle estate like Sauron's Dark Tower of Mordor.

We'll leave the trees behind to climb Swinyard Hill, Broad Down and Hangman's Hill to reach the eerie Giant's Cave before tackling the iron age hill fort of British Camp to enjoy some local ale (or equivalent) at the Malvern Hills Hotel.

Our return journey takes us down the eastern slopes of the hills to Gullet quarry where we'll see an exposed cross section of Preambrian rock that makes up the core of the Malvern Hills, or Tolkien's White Mountains.

After a final pit-stop at the Middle Earth-inspired Ruffz Cafe, we continue south over Midsummer Hill, Raggedstone Hill and finally Chase End

For over 40 years my partner Dan's been exploring the Malvern Hills & there's probably not an inch of the range that he hasn't covered, whether in his walking boots, trail running shoes or on his mountain bike.
He studied the hills extensively for his Environmental Science degree, writing a dissertation that examined how the area's AONB designation protects it from the pressures of development.
Dan loves sharing his knowledge and experience with others, giving guided walking tours, telling the fascinating story of the history, geography, geology, ecology & cultural contribution of the hills.
He also talks for a living as a BBC local radio broadcaster & senior lecturer at the University of Worcester & our home is West Malvern's historic Ryecroft House, which offers AirBnB accommodation & is just 15 mins walk from the Table Hill summit.
