The walk starts at Snead Common, offering wide, sweeping views of Worcestershire, with Abberley Hill in the background. A short and moderate climb offers more views and this is followed by a descent to the charming village of Abberley and its Norman church. A steep but short climb takes you up onto Abberley Hill and then on past the famous clock tower and glimpses of farmed deer in the fields below. A path along open fields and then a rural track ends in quiet woodlands and a short walk up to the main road and the excellent Bell Inn at Pensax for refreshment.

Thanks for the encouraging comment, John. Sorry to hear about the third stile and thank you for pointing this out. I will look into it.

Fantastic walk we did yesterday afternoon. The third stile is broken though so would be a struggle for a less than fit person to get over.

Great pictures on your site, Ian, and I agree with you about The Bell: it's our favourite. The helpful landlord will allow a customer to sample the real ales they are considering from what is on offer before ordering. Very welcome after a walk. The food is good, too. Glad you enjoyed the walk.

What's not to like - a walk that starts at an award winning camera pub and has fantastic views in all directions. Pay attention at point 11 - the bungalow drive is a right of way but has no sign to confirm. There are a lot of stiles but my 10 year old Labradoodle could manage all of them unaided, apart from two. Another winning walk from this site - thanks. My photos at
