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