Welcome to MalvernTrail

A chance to enjoy the natural and cultural delights of the countryside and towns on and around the Malvern Hills, easily accessible in the Heart of England and also in reach of Welsh border country.

MalvernTrail information pages should be mobile friendly (using WordPress format) but there may still be some links to old website pages – please use the navigation bar or the back button if you hit these. Some of the photo albums are in the old style.

The events listings are for locals and visitors alike. News items appear here sporadically, also check local social media reporting on News Trail (can be slow to load). See below for the latest news and events.

Contributions are welcome – see the About page.

Old photo albums

Ones in updated format are in the main menu, under Malvern Hills.

And just in case of WordPress problems: the original MalvernTrail site map.

Double butterfly pleasure

First grayling butterfly spot of the year, but a good one, on the Malverns of course. Two attached graylings flew by and landed on the path just in front of me (about 2pm today). They were still there, intertwined, when I left 20 minutes later.  This was a minute or two after seeing two gatekeepers doing pretty much the same thing, and flying in front of me when I moved, still attached.
