County/Area - Herefordshire

Author - Allan Friswell

Length - 7.0 miles / 11.4 km

Ascent - 700 feet / 212 metres

Time - 4 hours 10 minutes

Grade - easy/mod

This Herefordshire walk takes you along the crest of Marcle Ridge with views of the distant Malverns. The climb from Kynaston to Marcle Ridge provides the only real effort in an otherwise easy-paced ramble. Much Marcle church is very much worth a visit.

Please maintain social distancing - keep at least 2 metres away from other walkers.
