Stourport to Bewdley River Walk

4 miles (6.5 km)

This easy walk takes you along the River Servern from Stourport to Bewdley. It's about a 4 mile walk along a fairly flat section of the Severn Way long distance footpath.
Start the walk on Stourport Bridge and follow the Severn Way north west, passing the pretty riverside meadows and Areley on the opposite side of the river. Areley Hall mainly dates from the late 16th century, though extensive alterations were carried out in the 1820s and 1870s. It is Grade II listed and largely timber-framed with some brick additions.
You continue to Blackstone and then past the Bewdley-by-pass before crossing the river at Bewdley Bridge. The three-span masonryarch bridgeover was designed by civil engineerThomas Telford and dates from the 18th century.
This route finishes in Bewdley but you could extend the walk by continuing south along the opposite side of the river to the Blackstone Riverside Park and Ribbesford Woods where there's some nice woodland trails.
In the town you could also visit The Queen Elizabeth II Jubilee Gardens which are located between the Bewdley Museum and the River Severn. The Bewdley museum, housed in the Guildhall explores the history of the town and has displays on local crafts such ascoopering,basket making, agriculture,charcoal burningandtanning.
For a longer route try our Stourport Circular Walk which visits the river and Hartlebury Common. You could also pick up the Geopark Way long distance footpath which runs through the surrounding Worcestershire countryside. The town is also on the edge of the Wyre Forest where there are miles of good cycling and walking trails to try. There is a visitor centre situated just outside Bewdley at Callow Hill on the road toCleobury Mortimer, where many waymarked trails through the forest start from.
