Walk the River Frome in a day
South Gloucestershire Council in conjunction with the Avon Frome Partnership is organising a special 20 mile walk along the entire length of the River Frome to celebrate the wildlife and heritage of the Frome Valley.
On Sunday 4th July, we will walk the whole length of the river and discover the many wonderful natural resources within the Frome Valley, including beautiful green spaces, parks, woodlands and riverside areas from the Cotswolds, through South Gloucestershire and into the heart of Bristol.
The day starts with a journey by coach from Bristol to the source of the river at the edge of the Cotswold Hills. From here we will explore the Frome Valley Walkway on a flat, easy-paced walk all the way back to the centre of the city. There will be additional coach pick ups at Frenchay, Winterbourne, Frampton Cotterell, Yate and Chipping Sodbury.
Full details of the walk are available here on the South Gloucetsershire Council website.
The Frome Valley Walkway booklet, which gives further details on this fascinating river and how you can explore it, is available from most libraries and information points in South Gloucestershire. It may also be downloaded in PDF format from the Walks page of the Frome Valley Walkway website.
