Walking Route Updates

The world is continually changing so it should be no surprise that once we've finished researching a route, written up the walk descriptions, designed the book ready to print, waited for the printers to deliver, and then finally a new Walk! book arrives; it is almost inevitable that someone has changed something. Updates to the routes in Walk! books are thankfully few because our authors are encouraged to use established routes meaning that our routes stay current longer, unlike some walking writers who seem determined to trespass on private ground.
Updates are incorporated into new editions of our Walk! books. Between editions we keep our client family updated through our eNews and Newsletters plus posting the Walking Route Updates here on our website.

Walk Around the Malverns
   Important Update: Changed start to Walk 24 download new page 106 for your book.
Walk 25 At the gate at waypoint 14 is a new sign 'Private No Public Right of Way' so the route is blocked.

There is a straightforward alternative which is to follow the 'Geopark Way' from Wp.12 to Wp.16, unfortunately not so attractive and missing out on the 'North Hill from Birchwood' view.
The revised description is:-  "....up a beautiful, sun-dappled track through woodland. Where a footpath crosses ours we turn right and follow the frequent signposts for the 'Geopark Way', out of woodland and up the left hand side of a couple of fields. With orchards and the courtyard development we passed earlier down to our right we turn left up a track back into woodland. Out of the woods the path, smaller now, is through long grass to an updated black and white farmhouse. We skirt this anti-clockwise following yellow paint daubs then head straight on between fences to a lane. Here we have a brief opportunity to look across Birchwood Common before turning right. Finishing our dalliance with the 'Geopark Way', where the lane swings left and a track goes straight on......"
