About Frome Valley Walkway
The Frome Valley Walkway is an 18 mile (29 km) footpath which follows the River Frome from the River Avon in the centre of Bristol to the Cotswold Hills in South Gloucestershire. The path also links the Cotswold Way National Trail at one end with the Avon Walkway at the other.
Starting in Bristol's Castle Park, the path skirts public parks in the City, where the river is culverted, and only becomes rural as it passes through Eastville Park. The walk then continues past Snuff Mills and on to the Oldbury Court Estate, passing beneath Frenchay Common, then to Cleeve Bridge before passing under the M4 motorway at Hambrook. Next, the path passes through Winterbourne Down, and under the spectacular Winterbourne Viaduct.
The path continues through parkland to Frampton Cotterell, then south of Iron Acton before it reaches Yate and the Goose Green Fields Nature Area. A large section of the walkway is along suburban pavement here, before the final stretch of fields leading to Old Sodbury where the Walkway officially stops.
Photos are welcome of the changing seasons, flora and fauna along the way. It would be useful to geotag photos for obvious reasons.
There is already an external website , but the photography there is limited. Perhaps our group can be a useful addition.
This is a public group.
