Be the Highest Person in County!

Date: 5th Feb 2024 Author: Lynn Lee


It’s Back! Following the success of the first ShireHike in 2023, ScoutsHW is pleased to be running the event again, this time based out of Colwall on the western slopes of the Malvern Hills.

The event will run throughout Saturday 9th March and 4 lengths of hike are available. The longest (recommended for Scouts, Explorers, Network and leaders) is 37km and this will take you to the highest point of the Malvern Hills, the Worcestershire Beacon, which stands at 425m above sea level, and is also the highest point in Worcestershire.

Nature and the outdoors are languages that can be learned. Once you identify a beech tree, tie a clove hitch or cook a simple meal over a fire that you’ve built yourself, you’ll never forget it.'
