A walk up to the top of one of the most dominant hills in the West Midlands, a prominent landmark from the M5 south of Worcester.
The hill is geologically part of the Cotswolds, but lies isolated from the rest of them in the Vale of Evesham. It featured in an A. E. Housman poem (“Bredon Hill”). It boasts the remains of a large Iron Age Hill Fort and a folly.

The walk is a generally reasonable ascent to the relatively flat area at the top. The descent is equally reasonable.

There are amazing views in all directions from the top to The Cotswolds, along the Vale of Evesham and towards the whole length of the Malvern Hills.
