9.30 am, 1+ Boot: Severn Bridge Walk (Joint)

Event Date: Sun 18 June 2017
Event Time: 10am

9 – 10 miles

Continue the walking festival weekend with this classic novelty walk.

We will walk over the old Severn Bridge and down into Chepstow, before returning the way we came. The old Severn Bridge was built in 1966 and has grade I listed status. It requires about 2 miles of walking to get from one end to the other, during which time we will have views up and down the channel and of the village of Beachley below us. We will stop in the shadow of Chepstow castle for lunch. There may be a possibility of getting a pub lunch in Chepstow, although I would advise bringing sandwiches in case the pubs are too busy.

Meet: St Mary Redcliffe at 09:30. The walk leader will meet you in Aust – please self-organise car shares and send a text before departing to let him know how many people are coming, so that he doesn’t leave without you! Please note that we cannot guarantee that there will be enough cars, but it is very rarely a problem.

Alternatively, meet in Aust (outside the Church at the Western end) at 10:00 – Map here

Postcode: BS35 4AZ

Bring packed lunch, pub to finish.

About Brunel Walking Group

Thanks for visiting us! Brunel Walking Group is for young(ish) people in the Bristol and Bath area who love the countryside and like to get outside on a weekend.

What is Brunel Walking Group?

Brunel is a thriving group with more than 400 members. All of our walk leaders and committee members are volunteers, dedicated to sharing our fantastic countryside with others.  Read more on our FAQs page

How do I join the walk?

There is no need to sign up to join a walk, just turn up at the meeting point where we will share lifts to the start of the walk.  You’re very welcome to try out 1 or 2 walks before you join, but we do insist that after that you join the Brunel Walking Group.  It’s OK if you don’t drive – we normally have enough drivers who are able to give lifts, but drivers often appreciate it when a voluntary contribution is made by passengers towards their costs.

How do I know what to bring? And am I fit enough?

We provide a full recommended kit list here.  Please do bring water, a rainproof jacket, walking trousers (or similar) and walking shoes/boots – avoid jeans and trainers.

Walks are graded as either 1 boot, 2 boot or 3 boot.  Read more about choosing the right walk for your fitness level here,
