This is a circular walk
Walk from Rock Street Car park at 10.15 - for those who are coming by bus use the number 79 bus departing from the bus station at 09.25 - for those who live on the A38 you may join this on the way up the Gloucester Road and get off at Rock Street car park - parking restrictions apply at this car park, and if you are hoping to come on this walk there will be alternative arrangements to park the car but please contact the leader in advance, This is a flat walk, using streets, lanes, tracks, footpaths and fields. You will need to bring a packed lunch and plenty to drink as there are no pubs on the way - we go past Thornbury castle, St Arilds church (morning coffee), past Oldbury power station to the remains of the old Windbound pub (lunch) and then go inland back to Thornbury NB there are no shorter options on this walk and some stiles in the afternoon - buses back to Bristol are 1/2 hourly and the walk should finish at around 4 to 5 pm and there are plenty of places for a drink at the end of the day if you wish - meet leader opposite Rock Street Car park by the shops/toilets.
