Newent is one of the oldest and most picturesque towns in the Forest of Dean with many historic buildings, dating back to Roman times. The walk immediately heads for Newent Lake, which is a haven for wildlife, set in the grounds of Newent Court. After leaving the town, a section of the disused Herefordshire and Gloucestershire Canal is followed, which includes a spillweir, lock and aqueduct.

The rest of the walk passes through gently rolling countryside and woodland, following a section of the Three Choirs Way, which connects Worcester, Hereford and Gloucester. An added bonus for the walk comes as you pass through a llama trekking centre, where you are guaranteed to see llamas; and if you time it right, you may even see them heading out on a trek.
