A varied walk starting from Maisemore, a small village on the west bank of the Severn, just north of Gloucester. The walk begins with a gentle climb up a limestone escarpment, which provides spectacular views of the Severn Valley, Gloucester and the Cotswolds. A steeper descent is made back down again before heading towards the Severn close to Ashleworth. The tithe barn is visited, which originates from the 15th Century and is owned by the National Trust.

On reaching the Severn at the Boat Inn, the walk heads back to Maisemore along the banks of the river. Close to the end of the walk, a weir is passed, which is the highest point on the river that the Severn Bore can reach. This is a naturally occurring tidal wave that flows up the Severn Estuary several times a year.

Very enjoyable walk, excellent instructions. The barrier was closed at the village hall so I parked 100 metres up the road by the church so wasn't a problem.

An excellent walk.Instructions very clear and accurate. Outward half up on ridge providing fine views across the Gloucester Vale and the return half easy stroll along the River Severn. Hope to return to the Boat Inn which is an old style pub by the river. The only problem we had which was not the fault of the walk's author was at points 15-17 as reported by another reviewer. The fields here were separated by electric fence after fence with at least 3 strands to each crossing and most of the way markers removed. The horses in the field were very lively and I had to become very energetic in getting them to turn away as my partner made her escape. The property owners should be reminded of their duty in ensuring reasonable access on public footpaths

Thursday 23rd June. Polling day at Maismemore village hall so the barrier was open.The day started well, field edge was actually mown. Apiary business amazing. It was 5star until...Gos Farm at 15. I had to hail a farm girl to set me on the correct path through electric hook-up fences. New to me. The paths through meadows were invisible. I needed a compass to find the last fence where I could see the Tithe Barn. Had too hack through undergrowth to unhook the 3 wires. I had to undo 12 wires in all. But-only saw 2 horses in the first field. So people detterent or what? Great lunch at The Boat, they do a variety of meals now.Path along the river quite hard work as most had not been mown. Good instructions,varied and interesting.

Great walk, with a whole range of features to enjoy, and even a pub en route. Easy to follow, and most enjoyable.
