The Wychavon Way

Image of Wychavon WayAn exciting up date to Worcestershire's walking opportunities comes in the form of a revised route of the Wychavon Way.

Developed as a partnership between Wychavon District Council and Worcestershire County Council, this route will now stay in the district of Wychavon – starting in Droitwich Spa (following much of the original route up until north east of Fladbury) and finishing in Broadway, taking in Pershore and Bredon Hill.

Image of a black and white house in the centre of DroitwichThe start and finish points are Droitwich Spa and Broadway, the route is waymarked in both directions so can be walked as desired. The magnificence and importance of each place should not be underestimated; Droitwich has been an important centre for Salt trading since Iron Age times while Broadway was established soon after the Norman Conquest and later became an important centre for trade in Cotswold wool, but is now better known for its independent little shops, welcoming cafes and pubs, housed in Cotswold beautiful buildings.Image of Broadway

On the journey of 40 miles between the two Worcestershire towns you will be guided  by the Wychavon Way logo through a variety of landscapes. From meadows, woodlands, orchards and riverside pastures, through hidden hollows and towering hilltops with stunning views over the famous Vale of Evesham and beyond.
