All welcome - bring your family and friends (sorry not suitable for pushchairs)

We will start our walk at the base of Bredon Hill, which is a landmark for miles around. A place full of archaeological sites, fascinating history and strange folklore. A hill so important, that it is named 'hill' three times! (see if you can work out how this can be)

Discover a deserted village named after wolves, find a vanished chapel and holy well, explore an amazing Iron Age hillfort with huge ramparts and hear about the bizarre burial rituals of our Neolithic and Bronze Age ancestors and what that has to do with carnivorous snails!

Please bring a packed lunch and plenty to drink as we will be walking to the top of the hill to picnic by the mysterious Elephant Stone for about 1.30.

Please wear suitable walking boots or trainers, sandals are not suitable, as we will be covering some rough and uneven ground.

We do not know what the weather will be like, so bring sun protection cream and a hat if it is hot and sunny, and waterproofs, just in case it rains.

It is a good steep walk going up - but very fast coming down again!

Please book using our usual gmail address - wyaclub@gmail.com and let us know who you are bringing with you. Cost is 1 per member but everyone else free of charge.

The walk leader is Deborah Overton and her mobile on the day 07596723923. Please let us know if you cannot make it so we don't wait around for you.

IT'S GOING TO BE GREAT SO COME AND JOIN US!

Location: Meet in the lower car park at The Deerpark Business Centre,
