The rivers Severn, Wye, Teme and Lugg are crossed as are the Marcle and Malvern Ridges and the Suckley Hills.
Time permitting it is well worth scheduling a visit to the 3 Cathedrals.
Gloucester Cathedral is most recognised as a location in three of the Harry Potter films. It also has a stained glass window depicting golf dating from 1350 – 300 years earlier than the first Scottish images!
Hereford Cathedral is a Grade I Listed Building dating from 1079 and is dedicated to St Ethelbert the King who was beheaded by Offa King of Mercia in 792. Its most famous treasure is Mappa Mundi, a medieval map of the world dating from the 13th century.
We will have all carried a picture of Worcester Cathedral around with us at some point, as the west facade appeared, with a portrait of Sir Edward Elgar, on the reverse of £20.00 note issued by The3 Bank of England between 1999 and 2007. Dating back to 1084, Worcester Cathedral was doubtless spared destruction by Henry VIII during the English Reformation because his older brother Arthur Tudor is buried there.
