River walk to Bewdley

A short walk from Blackstone car park to Bewdley along the river .8 mile each way.


 Bewdley is a small Georgian town in the Wyre Forest District area of Worcestershire. Sitting on the River Severn, its name comes from the French words Beau Lieu – “beautiful place”.

Bewdley  town is  home to some very pretty  churches, a museum, 3 beautiful gardens,  pubs, takeaways, restaurants and walks, something for every one.

The walk we did is a favorite for us when we want to go into Bewdley, we park at Blackstone car park and walk along the river into the town. On this walk you pass a llama farm before hitting the river path, sometimes this path can be very muddy, but short and relatively flat the mud is rarely a problem. The walk is around .8 mile each way so easy for even little legs, often ducks and swans can be seen swimming along. Always pretty no matter what time of year, on the day we walked the autumn colours were coming through and leaves were falling from the trees as we walk along. Once in the town there are lot’s of things to see and places to eat so if you have a day to fill or just an hour it’s easy to find something to fill the time. To get back to the car park you can retrace your steps or take the river path on the opposite side, however towards the end of this path there is a steep set of steps to climb up then a short walk along a very busy road, or up the steps, short walk along the road, down more steep steps and back past the Llama farm to the car park.
