This ten-mile circular Severn Valley walk has a little bit of everything in it from canals, museums, rivers, the Severn Valley Steam Railway, hillside and woodland and remarkable views. It explores the riverside towns of Bewdley and Stourport-on-Severn and the countryside between them.

Due to long stretches of fairly easy-going terrain and very few stiles, this walk can be done quite quickly. There are plenty of opportunities to make a day of it, visiting the Severn Valley holiday towns of Bewdley and Stourport-on-Severn with their museums, canals, gardens, children's play area etc.

The walk explores the footpaths of surrounding countryside between two towns and is found to be interesting and varied throughout.

Note from Walkingworld: please be aware that there are two or three places where concentration and good navigational skills are required to follow this walk. Please make sure you take the Walkingworld/OS map with you and a compass (or GPS) may help too.

After a few difficulties have been reported I have been on site this evening. At the bottom of Stagborough Hill the waymark post is still in place but it's not an easy path to follow. I've yellow taped a few trees to make it easier but nothing has changed there. Some of the waymarks at the golf course had new growth partly obscuring them which I've cut back. Again not one of the easiest parts of the walk to follow but the waymark post is there. The walk doesn't go as far as The Devil's Spittleful but turns left on an unmarked path parallel to the railway line as clearly described. In these three areas concentration is needed in following the instructions.

Completed this walk 03/05/09. Two paths were marked as closed but there was no problem with following the walk instructions. There was a slight diversion in place above the church. Lovely varied walk. Bev & Steve
