This event is no longer available.

This is a great time to walk in the Lickey Hills, when the trees are displaying their autumnal colours and snowdrops are nestling in the woodland.

Today we have leisurely walking to suit everybody, whether you want an easy 3 miles amongst the snowdrops, or you wish to continue with a hill walk in the afternoon. The walking is all on good paths.

Figure of 8 walks allow you the opportunity to just do one short “easy” walk, or to stay on after a café break* for a second circuit that makes the distance up to “moderate” level. You can decide on the day whether to stick after the first walk or continue for the full 6 miles. Richard will point out features and history as we go.

We meet at the Visitor Centre at Warren Lane and our walks are as follows:

Ramble 1) 10.30am depart for a southern circuit of that takes in parts of the Bluebell Trail, Sculpture Trail and Woodpecker Trails. At this time of year, we hope to find snowdrops on all these routes. We'll enjoy woodland paths and panoramic views. We'll also stop to admire (and interpret??) the curious art installations along the way. We should be back at the Visitor Centre around 12 noon, where we can get drinks/ snacks if we wish (or bring a picnic lunch).

Ramble 2) 1pm depart from The Cafe/ Visitor Centre heading north to discover the high point of Beacon Hill with it's fort (a Victorian folly with links to the Cadbury family). We'll enjoy various habitats including ancient woodland and pools. There is a cafe as well if we need another break! This route is approx. 3 miles and we expect to be back at the Visitor Centre by 3pm.

Dogs: This route is dog friendly and there is seating outside the café for those with dogs. So if your dog is “people friendly”, please bring them along!
