Worcestershire Beacon – at last.

When we first moved to Worcester in October 2009, I expected that I would pop up Worcestershire Beacon, the highest point in the county, within a couple of weeks. Well here we are in July 2010 and somehow it hasn’t happened – until today that is.

It’s been a very busy month but I didn’t want to get to the end of it without putting in at least one walk. So despite the rather dull and cloudy conditions I set off at 10:00am this morning.

I chose a slightly less-travelled way by starting from Earnslaw quarry, just off the B4218 Wyche Road between Great Malvern and Colwall. I didn’t meet a soul until gaining the ridge which was beginning to get busy along the tarmac path.

I avoided the tarmac all the way up but came down it to the main road, along which I returned to the car.

Not a day for views as the visibility into the distance was poor, so no sight of the Brecons today. I’ll be back!
