Two Bridges Loop
About this walk
This walk takes you out along a thrilling stretch of the River Severn, walking from the Severn Bridge down towards the Second Severn Crossing before returning through gentle farmland. This is excellent bird watching territory, and the views are extraordinary. A great walk for people who love engineering, architecture, and wildlife. Click here to download the walk leaflet.
10 kms – about 4 hours, starting at Aust Church.
The walk follows public footpaths with short sections of quiet roadway. It also twice crosses a busy dual carriageway; do take care when on road and when crossing. You may encounter cyclists and horse riders as well as cars. There is one stile along this route. Please note: in winter and wet weather, wellies are a must for this walk!
Food and drink
The Boar’s Head pub in Aust is very near the starting point; the White Horse Inn in Northwick is about half-way through the walk.
You can park in the village; please park sensibly.
Respect, Protect, Enjoy
Always follow the Countryside Code.
Park sensibly – don’t block gates or drives. Leave gates as you find them. Leave farm animals and machinery alone. If you think an animal’s in distress, alert the farmer. Keep to the public right of way.
Leave no trace of your visit and take your litter home. Keep your dog under effective control and pick up after your pet – dog mess can harm livestock. It is good practice to keep your dog on a lead around livestock; however, if cattle or horses try to chase your dog, it’s safer for both of you to let your dog off the lead to run away.
Plan ahead, dress for the weather, and wear appropriate clothing. You may want to bring snacks and water on your walk. Be aware you may not have a mobile signal in places during your walk.
