This is a circular walk
The walk will start with a descent from Montpelier Station along paths to a little known area of St. Werburgh's before climbing up on to Purdown. Here, either side of the down, we will have great views across the north west and north east areas of Bristol. We descend Purdown to cross under the M32, emerging to have a coffee stop at Snuff Mills before starting our return walk along the Frome Valley. This continues through Eastville Park before emerging at the far western end under the M32 again and climbing back through another part of St. Werburgh's to Montpelier. Most of the walk will be on paved footpaths, except for the section across Purdown which may be wet after recent (or current) rain, but not muddy. There will be plenty of options for lunch in bars and cafes in the Gloucester Road at the end of the walk.
