Lenches – Trip Report

Lenches is an 11 mile walk mostly on footpaths and bridleways around the Lenches villages in the vale of Evesham, there are 25 traditional caches in total. There were plenty of nice views and great countryside on the way around, all the caches were well hidden whilst at the same time not being too difficult to seek out. I did have one dnf, but overall it was a very enjoyable series.

Church Lench

The series began in Rous Lench then headed through woodland along the Wychavon way to Church Lench, a nice little village with a very large church. I also liked  the “toy cottage”, a miniature thatched house in the village.

From Church Lench the terrain was hard going for a while due to the long grass around the edge of the fields.  It’s clear that not very many people walk these paths, even though they are part of the sign posted Wychavon Way. With a bit of patience and choosing my route carefully it was possible to negotiate the over grown footpaths without too much trouble.

View from Claycombe Hill

The trail continued to Sheriff’s Lench, through a large orchard then around Craycombe Hill where the best views of the series area to be seen as well as some nice timber clad houses.  Finally the trail went through Bishampton before returning to Rous Lench alongside a little brook.
