St Kenelm's Routes

97 km / 60 miles

Gloucestershire, Worcestershire
Two distinct routes, respectively St Kenelm's Way and Trail, joining the two places often linked with the legend of St Kenelm, grandson of King Offa, making walks from the Clent Hills south-west of Birmingham, the scene of his death, south across Worcestershire into Gloucestershire to his burial place, Winchcombe in the Cotswolds. The routes intertwine, sometimes in common, as on the Worcester-Birmingham canal. The Way has more canal towpath and it runs nearer Evesham while the Trail takes a Saxon ridgeway over Bredon Hill. At 60 miles the Trail is the longer by 10 miles and has more ascent (5200ft versus 3700ft).
