Walks in Severn Country

Walks in Severn Country

by: Roy Woodcock
The River Severn, Britain's longest river, rises on the slopes of Plynlimon in Wales and flows through the beautiful counties of Powys, Shropshire, Worcestershire and Gloucestershire before discharging into the Bristol Channel. From Roman times it formed an essential route for the transport of goods and served the important towns of Shrewsbury, Worcester, Gloucester and Bristol. It played a significant role in the development of Ironbridge, Britain's first industrial town.
In this book the author presents an absorbing account of the geography and history of the river accompanied by twenty walks that explore some of the fine towns and countryside that the Severn passes through on its 220 mile journey to the sea. The lengths of the walks range from 2 to 12 miles, with an average of about 6 miles and all are circular. Clear directions and sketch maps are provided together with useful practical information.
The walk locations are: Plynlimon; Llanidloes; Caersws; Caersws, Abermule; Welshpool; Welshpool, Melveley and the Vyrnwy confluence; Shrewsbury - Haughmond Hill; Atcham; Ironbridge; Bridgnorth; Bewdley; Stourport; Worcester; Severn Stoke; Tewkesbury; Gloucester; Framilode; Frampton on Severn; Slimbridge; Berkeley and Sharpness.
