Overview

An undulating walk with some expansive views of the Severn Estuary and across to the Forest of Dean and Wales.  There is one long, gentle uphill climb near the start. There are a mix of stiles, some awkward, and kissing gates. The walk is about 6.5 miles. We'll have a short coffee/ snack stop at St. Arilda's Church near Oldbury - there are a couple of benches but you may prefer to bring a mat.
