The Fold Nature Trails in collaboration with Worcester Roots Foundation: a series of way-marked, family-friendly paths giving access to the beautiful and tranquil green space running from the main Fold site to the River Teme.
Click on "Keith's Nature Trail Blog" to get a regular update of things to see and do on the trail, along with fascinating facts and ideas for how to get the best out of your time on the trail.
Almost daily Keith Falconer updates you with information about wild life happening around the Nature Trails. The notice board is located next to the gate to the Nature Trails at the far end of the main car park.
We need your help to gain a better knowledge of the animals, plants, fungi and all other life around the Nature Trails. If you spot something along your walk that is unusual, that you haven't seen before, that you like, or that concerns you, please share it with us.

This trail is around ¾ of a mile and takes you to the beautiful and peaceful Tank Lake area. Here, you have stunning views of the Malvern Hills and surrounding area, can watch the wild birds, and enjoy the wild flowers and reeds which surround the lake – it’s a perfect area for a picnic.
This trail is around 1 mile long. Following the route of the old Worcester to Leominster Railway, this leafy, wooded track is ideal for nature spotting with many trees, birds and flowers to see. The end of the track joins the Lakeside Trail with access back to the Fold Café.
This part of the Nature Trail has been constructed by volunteers from The Worcester Roots Foundation. We would like to thank them for their hard work and we are sure that everyone who visits the Railway Trail will see what a great job they have done.
This trail is around 1 mile long in total, and takes you down to the River Teme with its dramatic view across the surrounding countryside. The secluded Riverside Trail, with a picnic area, eventually joins the Railway and Lakeside Trails.
Our Nature Trail is open any time you feel like breathing fresh air, hearing bird song, walking among trees, watching out for wildlife and smelling the scents of nature.
All the trails are easy to navigate but some have gates and steps in places. Occasionally the ground can be a bit muddy so we recommend sensible footwear. Additionally:
Thank you, and we hope you enjoy exploring!
