Eight of us met at Strode Road Car Park and drove to Old Passage, for the start of our 6.25 mile walk. First we walked to have a look at the old ferry crossing, a little nostalgia moment for some. A ferry had been operating at this point since Roman times.
We moved on to look at the famous cliff by the Severn Bridge where plenty of fossils can be found, and on to the Old Severn Bridge where we could get a different view of the Severn plus the new bridge.
Moving on from there we walked into Aust and picked up a track crossing many fields to Northwick.
The Church At Northwick collapsed because of the soggy ground. The Tower still stands for the delight of gargoyle fanciers.
We left Northwick and crossing the busy main road making our way back to the River Severn. On reaching the banks of the Severn, sunshine left us, for a very heavy downpour of iced rain, where we got very wet. Making our way back to our cars, then onto The Boars Head for a enjoyable lunch. A thoroughly enjoyable day had by all.
