2s. ‘Uncovered’ Chase End Hill - Geology and Landscape Trail

Chase End Hill 'Uncovered'

Chase End Hill ‘Uncovered’

This trail follows a route over Chase End Hill, the southernmost outcrop of the Malvern Hills, into the valley at Whiteleaved Oak and on to towards the village of Bromsberrow. Along the way you will visit an old quarry in the metamorphic rocks of the Malverns Complex and enjoy stunning views all around from the top of Chase End Hill. The Whiteleaved Oak Shale and Bronsil Shale have been baked by igneous intrusions which are seen in a small secluded old quarry, and rocks derived from erosion of the mountains which are now the Malvern Hills are seen beside the road to Bromsberrow. A sunken lane demonstrates desert sandstones, before returning to the start over beautiful parkland.
