An easy flat walk of @ 1 mile with seats looking across the Severn to the Severn Bridge. Only problem, toilets closed when I visited. Went to nearby Taurus Crafts for a snack. Wonderful views.

Interesting to see how life would have been when the railway was running through to the harbour and coal discharged onto barges. We enjoyed walking along the site of the old railway line, but this tourist attraction could be made much better with the provision of some toilets and a cafe at the very least.

As you approach you may well feel that you must either be on the wrong road or have made a mistake bothering to come but carry on through the industrial estate and you will be rewarded! Parking is very close to the harbour where you will also find the canal, a working lock and quite a few boats moored up.... More

Very quite and peaceful location, but not very much to see. The parking is free !! and you can look out across the river Severn. The sea lock is still operational. No toilets or permanent refreshments/ café there. Still worth a visit.

Parked up and set off, a lovely walk with great views across the Brizzol Channel (you have to say it in an Avon accent) and down to the awesome bridge. Wheelchair accessible paths, lots of informative signage about this history and area.

this is a brilliant stroll and really interesting bit of social / industrial history. What made us laugh most though were the permanent signs and maps from the regeneration project with the anotation of Toilets not in Use. Also the H&S execs had gone a bit overboard with there signage - which made us laugh all the more... if only... More

This little gem will be fantastic once restored. The old industrial area on the way is sad but keep going the view and lock area is worth the journey.

Well signposted along a road full of industrial estates, don't be put off. Free car park at the end. Go across the wheelchair/pram friendly lock bridge and turn right. The most spectacular views out across the Bristol channel with views of the Severn bridge (on a clear day). Follow the path along and enjoy the view from one of the... More

Good place for a nice walk, lots of people take their dogs. Good spot to sit and have a picnic, there are benches provided. Nice views over River Severn Estuary.

Nice little harbour at end of canal system with walks along the tow path and the foreshore.End or the harbour is fenced off due to renovations.This did not spoil the view of Sharpness Docks on the other side of the river where the steamship Balmoral was being relaunched after a refit.Small car park but no facilities other than in nearby...
