The walk along the Droitwich Canal was new to me and it's a peaceful pleasant way to walk. The diversion passes two pubs which wouldn't have been our choice as a walk, but is good Slow Ways methodology as it is at 6km, which is roughly half way in this 13km walk. The least enjoyable part of the walk was the walk along Hindlip Lane, which has no pavement, and which is quite busy with fast traffic. Overall it's a good walk, slightly spoilt by a couple of bits of poor plotting....
From here we use the pavement to cross the railway (this is a little unclear on the GPX file but there is no alternative), then follow the surfaced path across Salwarpe Road to Ledwych Road. We then follow the canal past Salwarpe to emerge onto the road near Porter Mill. At the bottom of the field we follow the hedge right to find an underpass under the main road to the left, then turn left again, then right at Holy Claines farm, along a lane which passes through a lorry park and eventually leads us to the Worcester & Birmingham canal, which we follow into Worcester, crossing to the West bank about halfway, then using pavements with pelican crossings to reach the meeting point at Foregate Station....
A nice varied route taking in canal, river, fields and connecting a spa town and cathedral city....
Hard to walk away from lovely Malvern with its good-looking charity shops, al fresco glasses of wine on offer, and general air of classy olde Englishness....
It's a delightful route that I'd 100% walk again....
Agree with Dan, that walking from Worcester to Malvern is the to go if you want to enjoy beautiful views of the Hills....

The walking is easy from Worcester to Malvern but once you get to the outskirts of Malvern the path is a bit overgrown and the marking are either not good or missing. Ideally you would have the gpx file to help guide you. There is only one busy road to cross, just outside Powick....
The field just south of Fernhill Heath should have a footpath cut across it (according to the map) but its just full of crops. I ended up walking round the edge on the west side of the field, as presumably the owner of the field watched me from a distance. However, the rest was very pleasant....
I walked from Great Malvern train station to Worcester Foregate Station and it was well over the suggested 10 miles....
Lovely peaceful Canalside (for the most part) route. Well plotted and easy to follow. Would definitely do again....
The path out of Kempsey is a bit muddy and overgrown and there is a diversion while they are working on the bridge and roundabout on Worcester's southern relief road....
A group of five walked this route from Worcester to Clifton. Generally the walk was through open countryside along footpaths that were accessible and in accordance with the GPX route although some road walking was required. The route continues to Castle Hill following a busy main road and was considered risky....
Easy to follow and generally keeps to footpaths...
This route is blocked by heavy plant work at Holt and you can’t get through and instead it’s a ‘make it up yourself’ diversion involving significant road walking....
From Malvern to Worcester it is generally a nice downhill slope, views were pretty good (until after dusk - I ran this route late in the evening)....
I recommend this route as part of Slow Ways as a starting route. There is a field that this route crosses that starts with a style that has a large unavoidable puddle, it had been raining before my walk. I will attempt to upload a more tidy version of this route and upload to Slow Ways as a slightly better alternative....
It includes the short but necessary deviation along Hindlip Lane to access the underpass under the A449 (good Monarch's Way signing here)....
