History with a Gentle Walk …

We will be meeting in person on Saturday 10th September 2022 for a walk through the area of Malvern known as Barnards Green. This includes the present day Barnards Green and down to Guarlford. It is an area full of history including:

Learn how the shops area of Barnards Green developed

  • Where Barnards Green actually is
  • Saxon and early Medieval Malvern
  • Guarlford, including their history exhibition
  • Wood Street – the prehistoric trackway
  • A WWII listening station
  • Victorian Mill
  • Coffee break (bring your own refreshments)

The circular walk is about 5 miles and mostly flat. There are no stiles to climb. We expect the walk to take 3 hours, depending on how much time we spend investigating the various locations.

The walk is timed to coincide with the Heritage Open Days events in Guarlford where the parish church and village hall will be open to view. There is also an exhibition of local history there.
