The Malvern Hills. The Celtic name
Moel-bryn means Bare-Hill. The hard 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. This limestone was formed at the bottom of the Silurian sea which covered the area 350 - 400 million years ago. Eastward in the Severn plain are younger rocks laid down in the later Triassic times. These skirt the hills on the eastern side.
