64 km / 40 miles
The Wychavon Way was relaunched in 2012 to coincide with the Queen's Diamond Jubilee, with substantial route changes and a new guidebook. Now starting in the Spa town of Droitwich with historical canals and finishing in the traditional Cotswold village of Broadway, the Wychavon Way goes through meadows, woodlands, orchards and riverside pastures, from hidden hollows to towering hilltops with extensive views over the famous Vale of Evesham and beyond.

Developed as a partnership between Wychavon District Council and Worcestershire County Council, the new route now stays in the district of Wychavon, following much of the original route until north east of Fladbury, but now taking in Wyre Piddle, Pershore and Bredon Hill summit (an optional detour on the original route). It includes the Lenches and Ashton under Hill.

The Way originally opened to commemorate the Royal Silver Jubilee in 1977 and extended outside Wychavon: it started at Holt Fleet and took in Ombersley and later Fladbury and Netherton and after Ashton, Gretton, to finish at Winchcombe. The original route was shown on OS maps.
