Summary: The Wyche Way is a long distance path that links two national trails; The Offa’s Dyke Path and The Cotswold Way. The idea for the route was first thought up by Gloucestershire rambler, Fred Wood in the late 1970's, and then the idea was moved forward and completed by Guy Vowles. The name itself is best known from an old 'Saltway' crossing of the Malvern Hills known as the Wyche Cutting, but there is also the connotation of Which Way (to go) and there is also an outlying arae in Kington with Wych connections.

The route starts in Kington and goes via Wootton, Almeley, Logaston, Newchurch, Sallys, Weobley, King's Pyon, Bush Bank, Queenswood Country Park, Bodenham, Pool Head, Maund Bryan, Whitechurch Maund, Upper Town, Ullingswick, Burley Gate, Much Cowarne, Hope's Rough, Five Bridges, Bishops Frome, Fromes Hill, Beacon Hill, Moorend Cross, Mathon, Great Malvern, Malvern Wells, Hanley Swan, Church End, Upton upon Severn, Naunton, Upper Strensham, Eckington, Bredon Hill (St Catherines's Well), Ashton under Hill, Dumbleton, Stanton and Snowshill to the finish at Broadway Tower Country Park.
