The Malvern Hills are in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty in the heart of the Midlands in the UK. Comprising the oldest rocks in England, the Hills rise out of the Severn Valley as a natural barrier dividing Herefordshire and Worcestershire. Midway down the spine lies a pass called the Wyche Cutting, an ancient salt route from which walkers can now descend the northern end of the Hills and continue along the Abberley and Malvern Hills Geopark Way towards Gloucester. In doing so, you will start heading down towards the village of Colwall, and this Geocache is located adjacent to the Malvern Hills GeoCentre which is the official visitor centre for this designated walk. On a clear day, visitors to the geocache locale will see Herefordshire stretch away from them towards the Welsh mountains in the distance, and glimpse other interesting geological features in the landscape. The Centre has information all about the Hills including the history, geology and hydrology of the local area as well as cafe for those seeking a little light refreshment as well.
