we have been here before but on our own boat, very impressed with harbour, people very friendly , local pub but wanted to see it going by car. Lydney it'self a small town, yes journey down to harbour looks disappointing as industrial estates on the left. But we kept going knowing harbour was there. Parked up.Then walked towards the Severn... More

Had a lovely walk around the harbour this morning. It didn't look too promising as we drove in thinking we were heading for an industrial site, but perseverance paid off. Very interesting place with great views across the river.

For the first day of Spring we enjoyed a leisurely walk around the harbour basin, lock and sea wall. Quite a shame to see so many neglected yachts that could so easily be transformed to their former glories. Full of charm and character and totally devoid of modern commercialisation, a very pleasant spot to meander around and take in the... More

It's interesting to try to imagine what the harbour was like in its industrial heyday. Visiting the outer harbour at low tide, we were impressed by the huge tidal range of the Severn. Our only complaint was that there is little information available regarding the sites history.

Took a trip here with my husband and dog and I must say it was a lovely walk. It was on a weekday so I am not sure if that makes a difference but it was lovely and quiet with a few other dog walkers and visitors. Nice views across the Severn and very peaceful and relaxing. No places to... More

The history of this place is intriguing as it was once a very busy harbour. You can feel its a place steeped in history. Its a nice place to go for a walk although be warned as others mentioned there are no facilities but there are boards with information. There are great views of the Severn and what I think... More

This is a nice spot for a winter walk, but be aware there are no railings at all, so small children should be kept away from the water side. There is a man made fall of water as the harbour gates lead into the river, I've never seen this before. When you get to the end it does open out... More

A beautiful, unspoilt location. Ideal for peaceful bracing walks with the constant yet everchanging view of the River Severn. Lacking in services however- no toilets or coffee shop but ideal for a picnic. Just make sure you take your rubbish home as also lacking in bins!
