Since the announcement that most of the country was officially “in drought” it seems to have done nothing but rain and as I write this, on Sunday morning, it is still raining.
The weather pattern in the Malverns was fairly predictable in that it rained most days with the only doubt being when and for how long? During the first week on my own I started two walks at 7.30am in order to beat the morning showers. This wasn’t practicable when I was joined by Bea, Amanda & Karen during the second week. Amanda felt unwell at times so missed a couple of walks and Karen’s B&B left a lot to be desired. Nonetheless, we did enjoy a few walks along the tops of the Malverns and whilst we were caught out in the rain a couple of times, we didn’t get too wet. In all, I managed 7 walks totalling 42 miles and 7,380ft of ascent.
