From the train station. Started in rain, had a couple of teas at St Annís Well. Dry by the time we reached the summit, but had a slip in some mud on the way down. Lunch in town before a long train journey home.catie16/07/2023

Last summit of the day on a 3 day 10 county top expedition with 26 school students and 3 teachers (including me). Very nice weather - dry and mostly sunny, but some high cloud. We did this one at close to sunset. Climbed from Upper Beacon Car Park (Upper Wyche). Obvious route along the ridge with a choice of paths and tracks, to the viewpoint indicator. I've done this one before as part of a longer trek along the whole Malvern Hills ridge. Lovely part of the world.jamessteel10004/04/2023
