Iron Acton is an old mining village, just north of Bristol, where as you can guess from the name, iron was once mined. Reminders of the mining past of the area can be seen from the walk, including a disused railway that was used to transport iron ore; the River Frome is crossed using the old railway bridge.

Much of the walk is alongside the tiver, as it follows the Frome Valley Walkway from Iron Acton to Frampton Cotterill, across meadows and through woodland. It is quite a shallow and rocky river in places and there are places along the walk where you can get to the water's edge and paddle.

Lovely walk through open meadows and along riverbanks. Good off lead opportunities and very little stock ( we only met a few horses ). There are some tricky stone stiles along the way which were not easy with a large dog.
