The Worcestershire Beacon. I The highest of the Malvern Range, 1,396 feet high. Immediately overlooking the town of Malvern, 8 miles from Ledbury. From the top, when a clear day, may be seen the Bristol Channel, Worcester (8 miles), Gloucester (20), Cheltenham (22), Tewkes- bury Abbey (14), Hereford Cathedral, Evesham (21), the Wrekin, Clee Hills, Radnor Forest, May Hill, the Cotswolds, Edge Hill, etc., etc. A series of carriage drives to the top of the hill has been con- structed, and affords easy access to visitors either on foot or by carriage. As a permanent memorial of her late Majesty's long reign, the Diamond Jubilee Committee of 1897 set apart from the subscriptions it received several hundred pounds for the erection of an Indicator, which occupies the site of the great bonfire on the summit of the hill, On a marble base and truncated pillar, bearing the appropriate inscription, The earth is the Lord's and the fulness thereof," is fixed a circular plate of phosphor bronze, protected by a thick sheet of plate glass. On it is engraved a map of the surrounding country for a distance of 66 miles, Round the margin is a reproduction of the most salient features of the landscape, with their names and distances in miles. Places actually visible under favourable condi tioiis. and whose direction merely is shown are indicated by different kinds of type.
