Worcestershire Archive & Archaeology Service (WAAS) will be running a series of guided walks around Broadway, Northwick (Worcester) and Bredon Hill this summer.

To celebrate the launch of their archaeological walk leaflet around Broadway, guided walks will take place in Broadway on Saturday 7th July and Thursday 9th August, between 1-4pm.

 

There will also be guided walks at Bredon Hill on Sunday 22nd July between 1-4pm, and Northwick in Worcester on Tuesday 31st July between 10:00am-12:30pm.

 

The new free archaeological walk leaflets will help both local residents and visitors to Broadway to discover Broadway's past and take in the spectacular views, at a time that suits them.

Community Archaeologist, Nina O'Hare, said: "There's lots of incredible history around Broadway and elsewhere in the region, so it's great to share these stories with people. I hope both locals and those further afield enjoy discovering what's under their feet in these beautiful areas of countryside."


Cllr Liz Eyre explained, "I walked the Cotswold Way in 2017, an experience enhanced by my understanding of the ancient history along its route. I commissioned this leaflet to share with walkers key aspects of Broadway's heritage and archaeology over and above it's more obvious natural beauty." 

 

The guided walks are a great opportunity for local residents to explore the history and archaeology on their doorstep.

 

Free walk leaflets can be found at Broadway Museum, tourist information, Broadway Tower and a selection of other venues in Broadway village.

 

The archaeological walk leaflet has been produced by WAAS with funding from Worcestershire County Council, Wychavon Chairman's Charity, Cotswold Conservation Board, Morris & Brown Café and Farncombe Hotel.

 

Guided walks are £6 for adults, £3 for under 16s.
