Having travelled down to Lydney for a meeting it was good to take 5 in a beautiful and tranquil spot before the continuous rain of the last month started up again. The quiet harbour just along from Lydney Docks, Rail Heritage Centre & Golf Club was worth visiting and fortunately for me the rain held off whilst I walked over... More

The place seems to have benefited from several large grants over the years and tries hard to hold its own as a notable visitor attraction, despite the geographical disadvantage of being so far away from the town - or anything else for that matter. The approach is not good, passed the scrap yard and old industrial units, but once there... More

Went down to the historic harbour to see the river Seven. The road to it is terrible, full of pot holes, and you drive through a derelict industrial estate. There is free parking when you manage to find the harbour, but not much else. No toilets, no food, one bench to sit on. The locks were interesting, so were the... More

This little harbour is steeped in history and informative boards tell you what has happened here over the years. Great views out over the River Severn in both directions. No facilities as such, but there is a Portaloo if you get caught short. Good walking area.

Such a beautiful walk along the old railway track, up to the harbour and through the gate alongside the river severn. When it is quiet it is such a wonderful place to be with the river one side and the rolling hills the other.

You approach the harbour through an industrial estate, which is a shame. The harbour itself has plenty of parking both before and at the main car park. There are a few boats within a captive lock. There is a harbour wall and a pleasant wlk along the esturary or a path alongside the small river leading to the harbour. It... More

First visit 55 years ago when my Aunt and Uncle lived in the yatch clubhouse. Have been many time never fails to inspire. The raw power of the river its beauty and its underlying threat. A wonderful place. Worth anyones time to visit

It's very boring! There is no real attraction and it has not been well maintained! It's such a beautiful site but it's wasted. With an empty factory site with smashed in windows etc it's really not the greatest of sites. Some tender loving care would see this site visited much more I'm sure!

We thought we had taken the wrong road as the drive took up through a tatty industrial estate in the middle of nowhere. It was easy to park up our motorhome by the side of the lock and take in the view of the boats. This is a local dog walking spot and it was nice to see people taking... More
