Murky Marcle Ridge

Not daunted by a bit of drizzle and mist, a group of HBC hikers enjoyed a walk along Marcle Ridge on Saturday, 19th March, led my Mike C. Panoramic (normally) views from the Ridge were somewhat obscured on this occasion but it didn’t matter and a good time was had by humans and dogs. Watch out for notice of the next HBC hike.

Kilpeck and Cole’s Tump

The HBC Hiking Group, having given prior permission for the Royal Wedding and the Cup Final to take place on the same day, set off from Kilpeck in warm sunshine on the morning of 19th May, 2018. We started from the lovely little Norman church in Kilpeck and inspected a fine oak tree on the village green, planted shortly after the Battle of Trafalgar to celebrate Nelson’s victory.

Malvern Sunshine

HBC hikers met on Saturday 21st April and walked and chatted in lovely sunshine around the south-eastern edge of the Malvern hills from Hollybush to the A449 just below British Camp. There, we lingered at the cafe for ice cream before a short steep climb up to the Herefordshire Beacon (for our group photo) and thence to lunch and back to Hollybush.
Please note that the next walk will start from Kilpeck on Saturday 19th May, coinciding with a certain wedding. But you can record the wedding …

Brisk Breinton

Brisk in the windchill sense that is, for a well-insulated HBC Hiking group maintained a fairly relaxed pace on a chilly but dry Saturday, 17th March.
We followed a figure of eight course of about 5.5 miles, starting and finishing at Breinton Church. The undulating farmland was varied and interesting and did not test us with any steep climbs.
We finished down by the Wye with a fine view of Belmont Abbey and then an inspection of Breinton Springs. Beano the dog wouldn’t stop for the photo because he was busy running about 5 miles for each one of ours.
A most enjoyable walk and we look forward to our next outing scheduled for Saturday, 21st April.
