Worcester Bromyard Leominster Greenway
The purpose of the Worcester Bromyard Leominster Greenway is to create a walking, cycling and horse-riding track along, or as near as possible to, the course of the original Worcester Bromyard Leominster railway. The route is about 25 miles. It passes through some of the finest Herefordshire and Worcestershire countryside as it crosses the Bromyard plateau before reaching the Teme valley. The Bromyard-Leominster section was closed in 1952 and the Bromyard-Worcester section closed 1964.
The aim is to follow as closely as possible the old railway route all the way from Worcester to Leominster via Bromyard. A secondary aim is to connect wherever possible into existing walking and cycling routes forming a bridge between the West Midlands and the Marches. Our aim is to deliver the scheme by building support within the community and by negotiation with the landowners. To this end we are happy to look at local diversions and accommodations that meet our aim of a safe route – one that we would be happy for our children and grandchildren to cycle on.
