Glevum Way

24 miles (39 km)

This circular walk takes you through the suburbs, countryside and villages around the city of Gloucester.
The walk starts at Gloucester's Victorian docks next to the Gloucester Waterways Museum which tells the story of England's canals and rivers. The walk then includes two consecutive waterside sections along the River Severn and the towpath of the Gloucester and Sharpness Canal, taking you to the village of Hardwicke.
From Hardwicke the path takes you through some delightful Gloucestershire countryside and the villages of Upton St Leonards, Hucclecote and Churchdown. The walk finishes by passing Gloucestershire Airport and the village of Walham, before returning to the Gloucester docks.

Glevum Way, near Churchdown - geograph.org.uk - 1069961

Glevum Way, near Churchdown. The Glevum Way was devised by the Gloucester Ramblers Group as part of the Ramblers Association Diamond Jubilee celebrations dating it to 1995. The footpath itself is rather older and is shown on my 1980s vintage Landranger map. The fence at the right is to stop people sneaking into the Gloucestershire Airfield.
