Before coming to live in Wales, this was my 'friend'. The 'Malvern Hills' were my childhood, my youth, my later years. They were the shape of Elgars 'Enigma Variations', they were the subject of beautiful TV programmes. I walked by day and through the summer nights, arriving at little villages before the sun comes up and the curtains open.
There are many wonderful videos showing these hills. If you are new to the Malverns, try this http://youtu.be/mfzcNmrvCd0
