Summary: The Worcestershire Way is a waymarked long-distance trail within the county of Worcestershire. It runs from Bewdley to Great Malvern. The Worcestershire Way begins in the Georgian town of Bewdley running south to Ribbesford; the route then heads to Heightington before passing through woodland on narrow winding lanes down to Abberley Hill. From Abberley Hill the route goes south and up the steep Walsgrove Hill with views over the Teme Valley before continuing south to Ankerdine Hill and the Suckley Hills. From the Suckely Hills the Worcestershire Way heads south-east finishing in Great Malvern. The Worcestershire Way passes numerous places of interest, including St Leonard's church in Ribbesford, Abberley Clock Tower, Birchwood Common which was an inspirational place for Sir Edward Elgar, the Malvern Hills and St. Ann's Well.
