The Hills Again
One of the joys of living in Malvern are the hills. For a while we seemed to stop going up them but after a few great walks over Christmas we made a vow to walk several this year. I had planned to record at least one a month here but here I am in March with a backlog of photos. The hill at the top is British Camp - one of our favourite walks. The fact that it was once an iron age fort is plain to see from the earth works. My boys all loved it when they were young, imagining being a soldier standing up there, protecting the land from passing invaders.We still love it for the amazing views you get from the top (once you have your breath back!).
The second photo is Blackhill Looking out towards Ledbury and beautiful Herefordshire - you can just see British camp in the distance. None of the walks are terribly hard, I've taken a push chair over most of them, but the beauty is breathtaking. Once at the top it is good to have a slurp from the flask and a piece of cake and just sit and admire.
Now we need to decide which of the hills we are going to do next. Who wants to join me?
