This is a circular walk
Joint walk by Simon & Paul J. An urban exploration of Newport also taking in the Wetalnds & Transporter Bridge. If the M4 expansion takes place, parts of this walk may not be possible again for several years! Starting at Newport Station, we head through Newport, up Stow Hill, through Belle Vue Park & onto to the Transporter Bridge. It's £3 for a day pass (£2 for under 16s) including return by gondola. Those wishing to come on the walk but not climb the 270 steps for the high walk or are bringing dogs can use the gondola for £1.50 (return price). The staff will also be giving us a brief talk about the bridge & it's history. After descending, we follow the coastal path to the Newport Wetands. From here, the walk will then loop back into Newport.
Suitability: No car needed
