Taken from Book 1 of a Pictorial Guide to the Malvern Hills

This summary of the short walk starts from either the North Hill Quarry or the Tank Quarry car parks on the North Malvern Road, map reference SO 7705 4700. Following the climb past the Clock Tower there is a steep path up to Table Hill, and therefore this walk is not suitable for pushing buggies or for very young children. There are far-reaching views across Herefordshire to the west, Shropshire to the far north-west with the Severn Valley and Worcestershire to the east. The return journey is via the Westminster Spout and West Malvern.
