Walk Route Description
Click image to see photo description.
This walk includes sections of the Jubilee Way and the Severn Way long distance footpaths. The route starts from the village of Oldbury-on-Severn and continues to the shoreline of the River Severn estuary where it turns downstream. The walk then visits Littleton-upon-Severn before returning to the start using field paths and country lanes to pass St Arilda's church which stands on a solitary hill.
Limited on street parking is available in Oldbury-on-Severn (grid ref. ST608923). Please be careful not to block residents' access and park in a courteous manner. After parking locate the road bridge at the eastern end of Oldbury Pill and follow the Severn Way as it heads west to the Severn Estuary. The path is easy to follow and turns southwest with the river to your right. Continue along the Severn Way for just over one and a half miles to the junction of the Severn Way with the Jubilee Way (grid ref. ST582907) at Littleton Warth. Here turn left walking inland initially following a path but soon joining a track marked as Rushden Lane on maps.
Rushden Lane leads you to the road through Littleton-upon-Severn. On reaching the road through the village (grid ref. ST594899), turn left and in 400 metres reach a T-junction (grid ref. ST597902). Take the footpath almost opposite and in a short distance bear half right across the field to the corner of a small wood (grid ref. ST601905). Continue across fields to reach a road at Cowhill (grid ref. ST606914). Bear left along the road and continue, passing St Arilda's church on your left, back to the start.
