Severn Valley Country Park
This 126-acre riverside park consists of woodland, meadows and riverside banks with views of the River Severn. The park has several lovely waymarked trails while National Cycle Route 45 also runs through the park. Features in the park include a lake with a bird hide, a woodland walk along a boardwalk and a delightful riverside path. There is also an informative visitor centre and picnic areas.
If you have time you could continue your walk along the River Severn and the Severn Way towards Bridgnorth or Bewdley. Heading south along the river would take you to the delightful Arley Arboretum and Trimpley Reservoir. Around here you can try our Severn Valley Railway Walk which offers great view of the wonderful old heritage railway.
On a cycle you could also continue your ride along National Cycle 45 towards the two nearby towns mentioned above. The park is located about six miles south of Bridgnorth.

At the visitor centre there's a nice on site cafe selling a good range of refreshment.
The park is a great place for dog walking so you'll probably see other owners on your visit. Most of the park is off lead although they are not allowed on the Easy Access Nature Trail or the Toposcope Field Meadow because of the wildlife.
Further Information and Other Local Ideas
Head north along the river and you will soon come to the pretty Chelmarsh Reservoir where there's a pleasant waterside trail to try. Near the lake you'll also find one of the highlights of the area at Dudmaston Hall. This National Trust owned hall dates from the 17th century and includes expansive parkland and woodland. The area also includes the adjacent Comer Woods. The tranquil woods have their own car park and entrance and are free to access. There's a number of picturesque pools and lots of woodland birds to see in this area.
The circular Hampton Loade Walk visits the park from the train station in the nearby village. There's a Severn Valley Railway station and a 17th century pub in this pretty riverside village.
