A few days ago I took Jen on one of my favourite trips – the steam train from Bewdley to Bridgnorth, and then walking back along the bank of the river. The scenery is beautiful almost the entire way, especially with the spectacularly good weather that we had!
We went all the way to Bridgnorth and walked back as far as Arley, arriving just in time to catch the final southward train. The uphill stretch from the river to the station reminded me again that Jen’s running is way better than mine!
In fact the route from Hampton Loade to Bewdley, a similar distance of about ten miles, is probably the most scenic section. It may seem a bit churlish to complain about the scenery at the Bridgnorth end, which is itself hard to beat – but the stretch a few miles further south is even better!
The path itself is easy to follow (if in doubt, head for the river) and flat most of the way. There are many photo opportunities – almost too many!
