|Bewdley and Ribbesford Trail|
|Author: Claire, Published: 11 Mar 2012||Walk rating : Rating:|
|A 2 mile circular waymarked trail from the pretty Worcestershire town of Bewdley. The walk heads out along fenced paths and tracks across farmland before returning alongside a picturesque stretch of the River Severn. |
The walk is relatively flat with no stiles and just a few kissing gates. The route follows gravel, mud and grass paths some of which are likely to be muddy after wet weather. Approximate time 45 minutes to 1 hour.
The walk starts from the Gardeners Meadow car park in Bewdley which is accessed from Pritchard Court at the end of Severn Side South. The pay and display car park is free on Sundays and for the first 90 minutes on other days of the week. Approximate post code DY12 2DZ.
|Start to Kissing Gate|
Start point: 52.3736 lat, -2.3106 long
Before you start your walk you may want to explore the town of Bewdley. The name comes from the French - Beau Lieu - meaning beautiful place and its residents describe it as the most perfect small Georgian town in Worcestershire. There’s plenty to explore including riverside streets, museum, gallery, brewery, more than 20 pubs, restaurants and cafes and the Severn Valley Railway.
|Kissing Gate to St Leonard's Church|
Start point: 52.3718 lat, -2.3151 long
Pass through the kissing gate and follow the trail as it bends to the right and then turns sharp left alongside another gate. Follow this path alongside a short stretch of woodland to the right and then with fenced farm fields both sides. Ignore any footpaths through gates to the right.
|St Leonard's Church to River Severn|
Start point: 52.3641 lat, -2.3147 long
Take time to visit the church if you wish. Above the main doors are a series of carvings which date back to Norman times. When we visited, the church yard also had an outdoor tap and dog bowl to help dogs who are out walking on hot days.
|River Severn to End|
Start point: 52.3638 lat, -2.3096 long
Turn left to follow the grass path with the river on your right. You are now in Blackstone Riverside Park. Follow the path ahead with grass clearings and small sections of woodland on your left and the river to your right.

My wife and I did your Petworth and Shimmings Valley walk yesterday. It was absolutely beautiful and enhanced by the wonderful weather. Your instructions were the clearest I have ever used for walking.
Without doubt the best app that I have ever downloaded! - NT
This App is brilliant. It enables you to track your walks and download them for future reference. The Library provides you with a variety of walks and are supported by clear instructions and photographs along the route. This makes them very easy to follow. I have used the App for about two years and have found it invaluable. Should you have any queries about any aspect of iFootpath the support you get is second to none.
Absolutely beautiful walk, and a wonderful app. Thank you so much :)
I want to congratulate you on your web site/app performance, quick, reliable and easy to use. I have similar walking apps with OS Maps and ViewRanger but yours is best.
This app has totally changed my life, i absolutely love it. I did this walk yesterday, what a beautiful walk it is, i thoroughly enjoyed it and would definitely do it again, in fact i met an older gentleman who was on his 100 and something time there!! My sister and daughter cant wait to come along. The noise mentioned about the motorway is negligible and for me did not detract from the overall walk at all, the view from the top was stunning!!
So far I have downloaded 5 walks and completed 3 of them, tomorrow will be No 4. I love your website The walk descriptions are the best I have used in the last six years of rambling since I retired. This is a website I would be more than happy to pay a subscription for, instead I'll donate a sum to my favourite charity. THANK YOU.
Have deleted Pokemon Go and downloaded @ifootpathuk which is much more 'me'
I love the illustrated descriptions of each walk section. Really helps to enjoy the walk and get to know something about what I'm seeing. So much better than apps that only provide GPS co-ordinates and no photos or description. Love it!
After trying out numerous other apps I came across this one: way ahead of any of the others in every way. Much more accurate and very easy to use with great features. Would highly recommend it as THE app to use for walking.
Just wonderful, with walks for everyone: the fit, the not-so-fit, short walks, long walks, through woods, up hills (and down).
I highly recommend it, as my mum and I use it to go for walks and finish by eating at a pub. Its detailed and sometimes humorous instructions lead us easily to our destination. Also, to top this, it has interesting facts about the area we're walking in
I don't review much but this app deserves it. Downloaded some really good walks and the combination of the good descriptions and the really useful map of the walk showing where you are make it a brilliant tool. Well done and keep up the good work.
Very enjoyable and well described route. Views over the river from the warren were stunning.
Fantastic walk and amazing views. Great directions though I followed the GPS map mainly
Great walk, instructions were very detailed, perfect!
This may be the best walk I've ever done. It was certainly the best directions.
Even on a cold windy day with it trying to snow this was still an excellent walk. We managed it with our 2 children of 5 yrs and one in a all terain pram (a defo no no with a normal pram). Will be doing this one again in the summer.
Used app while visiting (it was great!)--live in Texas. Thanks!
Your app and walks are a dream to use
Did this walk this morning with our three little girls and we all love it. Great day outdoor!
