An 8km Walk up the Malvern Hills

So after the hearty pub lunch we took a rather long stroll up to the top of the Malvern Hills, one of the oldest hills in the UK.

We parked at the North Quarry and walked up to the beacon, the highest point in the range.

As it’s towards the end of summer a lot of the flowers are going brown and dying off for the browns of Autumn.

Dry Grasses

The heatwave has killed quite a few things off with this tree being totally barren.

My Mom was of course loving her new camera with its 10x optical zoom and image stabilser she could get good clear shots of things quite far away.

It was a beautiful clear day with nice bright blue skies and fluffy white clouds.

It was pretty bloody cold up the top though and extremely windy, was lovely to be out in the fresh air though with a view to kill for.

I love this, the burst of colour amongst the dying bush, this is not edited.


There was still a few flowers in full bloom.

    I never did visit Birmingham during my few years stay in the UK. My fondest memory of a walk was one along the seaside cliffs of the southwest, where we lost the dog and had to search for it in the dark.

    Michelle: Must have gotten eaten by Akisment spam thing. Thanks or the comment 🙂

    Julthefool: You can find the 1024 versions on my flickr, one is here.

    pinolobu: Not much to see in B’ham, lot’s of culture though and some great food, good China town, good nightlife. The surrounding countryside is beautiful too especially in Hereford and Worcestershire.

    Lucky it’s you, if it had been that fat-arse Kenny Sia walking 8km we’ll probably be flooded with proclamations how it was a death-defying act, or something that took tremendous courage/skill/guts/athletic capabilities etc.

    Sorry, I love ranting about that fat poser in your blog…hope you don’t mind..
