This is a summary from book two. This is a short walk taking just under the hour for those with limited time to enjoy in part the splendours of Great Malvern and St Ann’s Well. This excursion starts at the Malvern Priory, heads uphill along Church Street, St Ann’s Road, Green Valley, St Ann’s Well and back into Great Malvern by the ’99 steps’ and Rose Bank Gardens.
