Bosbury is a small village close to Ledbury and is noted for its black and white buildings. The church dates back to the 12th Century and is unusual, as the tower is separated from the main church building. It was built like this for defensive purposes in the troubled Marches region. The Knights Templar had a base in Bosbury and there is a Templar gravestone inside the church.

The walk starts from the church and heads north, staying close to the River Leadon. The area was the largest hop-farming region outside of Kent in the 19th and 20th Centuries, although it is much reduced now and many old hopyards stand empty or have been demolished. After climbing the side of Beacon Hill, the walk heads towards Coddington, at the foot of the Malvern Hills.

Coddington is a beautiful village with a large Norman church and high spire, this time connected to the church. There is a vineyard close by that produces award-winning wines; and the walk will take you right through it after leaving the village before returning to Bosbury.
