Severn Way: Oldbury to Berkeley

Saturday 2nd December 2017

In my previous post, I signalled an intention for 2018; to walk more of the Severn Way long-distance footpath.

This is a walk from early December, when I first put that plan in to practice. In this post, I’ll share the route along the Way. In a future post, I’ll show you my return route to complete the circuit to my car.

Highbridge to Hunstpill

Saturday 25th November 2017

One week earlier, I was exploring the coast path and countryside of Pembrokeshire.

In stark contrast to that, I decided to head south and for a partly-familiar walk in Somerset, following a small portion of the official England Coast Path, as opened in 2016.

Saundersfoot to Tenby (Wales Coast Path)

Sunday 19th November

By the time we all arrived and parked our cars in Saundersfoot, everyone had packed up in preparation for the drive home to Bristol.

Manorbier to St. Florence (Wales Coast Path)

Saturday 18th November 2017

Llansteffan Circular Walk (Wales Coast Path)

Thursday 16th November 2017

I’d booked the day off work, plus a further three to follow. This Thursday was officially the start of my long-weekend away in Pembrokeshire – my first ever visit to this corner of Wales – and part of Brunel Walking Group’s annual “Christmas” Away Weekend.

Having booked my own accommodation away from the hustle and bustle of the Youth Hostel, I was travelling alone. Leaving my home in North Somerset by 9am that morning, I stood a good chance of reaching Carmarthenshire by midday.

Posset Round Walk

Sunday 5th November 2017

Bonfire night! But, before all of that, I drove over towards Portishead for a fairly local walk with Brunel Walking Group.

I found it refreshing to be able to drive across North Somerset and avoid Bristol altogether, on this one. We would all meet and start close to Clapton-in-Gordano, with a number of us parking our cars within the darkness of the M5 flyover.
