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