Herefordshire Beacon


Herefordshire Beacon

The Herefordshire Beacon is one of the hills of the Malvern Hills. The name "Malvern" is probably derived from the Welsh "moel fryn" or "bare hill". It is 1,109 feet (338 metres) high, although the Victorian era inscription at the foot of the hill puts its height at 1,145 feet. It is surrounded by an Iron Age earthwork known as British Camp.
