Walk! Around The Malverns with Bob Greaves Experienced walking guide researcher and author Bob Greaves leads us on thirty walks of discovery in his home area in Walk! Around The Malverns. Ranging from gentle riverside strolls to a strenuous hike along the total length of the Malvern Hills (including all its summits), there are walks for all abilities. Roughly enclosed by the ancient towns of Worcester in the north of our area, Hereford in the west and Gloucester in the south, the area covered included a wide variety of landscapes; even those who are familiar with the area should find a few pleasant surprises.

Some routes exploring villages and areas of historic interest; Bob shares his extensive local knowledge to enhance your experience. The rivers play an important part in shaping the area and several walks include sections passing along their banks and to the settlements connected to them. And then there are, of course, The Malverns themselves; ancient, prominent hills from which magnificent views are to be had.

As Bob says, "My aim throughout is to inspire confidence."Each walk is fully described and includes regular timings, compass directions and GPS data ensuring that you''ll stay on track. It''s easy to find the start of each walk as postcodes and OS references will get you to the spot and there are details of public transport options. Before you set out you''ll know the length of the route in both miles and kilometres, the time it took the author to complete the walk, difficulty level and heights climbed and descended.

Most routes include a good local pub or cafe for on-route or end of route refreshments, almost all of which have been tested by the author. All the walks have been re-walked and researched within the last year so you can be sure all the details are up to date. Each detailed walk description is accompanied by licensed OS Explorer (1:25, 000 scale) map sections overlaid with Bob''s route plus the waypoints he recorded at key decision points and places of interest.

Colour photos capture key points along each route bringing the route alive as you read the description.'Walk! Around The Malverns'' will enrich your visit to this beautiful region and we thoroughly recommend it as your'companion'' as you walk around The Malverns.

Cancellations - non personalised/bespoke items

The Consumer Contracts (Information, Cancellation and Additional Charges) Regulations 2013 (formerly the Distance Selling Regulations) provide consumers with the right to a 'cooling-off' period to allow you to change your mind. Under these regulations, you have the right to cancel your order, without explanation, within 14 days of delivery (starting the day after you receive the goods) and to return the goods for a refund within a further 14 days (28 days in total). The Distance Selling Regulations do not apply to businesses nor to individuals who are trading or acting as a trader (buying goods to re-sell for profit) because no-one is the 'Consumer'. This means there is no 'cooling-off' period and the order cannot be cancelled once processed.
