Wonderful Worcestershire countryside with the backdrop of Bredon Hill, and often with the Malvern Hills in view, this walk follows the course of the lower River Avon for a time. The architecture in these parts is very appealing, often thatched and half timbered, and always interesting. The riverside section from Eckington Bridge to Nafford Lock is peaceful and serene, interrrupted by the dramatic force and torrent of water of Nafford Weir, just before the lock. Altogether, a walk of contrasting features and interests.

In snowdrop time (Late January to early March) make a small diversion to see the snowdrops and crocus in the church yard at Birlingham: Before Waymark 8 - Turn left and walk 400m to the village green - the church is in front of you.

I think that the best part of this walk is crossing the weir, which does make the walk worth doing. It is a shame that there is quite a bit of walking along lanes and roads, but having checked the map, there doesn't appear to be any alternative.
