The core of the Malvern hills is 600 million years old igneous, metamorphic rock, thrust up from the east to up-lift millions of years deposit of limestone. The rocks give their character to the soil above them, so the lime rich soil to the west grows lime loving plants. On the higher slopes grow many plants of acid soils such as are not found until the mountains of Wales are reached some 50 miles to the West.
