Disappointing long walk
Jul 2018 • Friends
This is a full day's walk from central Bristol to Old Sodbury - a minimum of 18 miles - sadly the signposting is very poor - it disappears completely where the route is diverted near Cog Mill Farm and again when going through the Yate outskirts. We are experienced walkers yet we got lost 2/3 times. Some of the countryside is magical - Snuff Mills, Frenchay and Cleeve Mill - but it becomes rather dull on way to Frampton Cotterell and then on to Yate and Chipping Sodbury - lots of tedious field walking alongside a rather deplete River Frome.. Finally, on arriving at the Dog Inn you are rewarded with a bus stop telling you the last bus was 15.20!! Am glad we completed it, but we will definitely not do it again.

Easy accessible long walk from Bristol
Apr 2017 • Solo
Found this on the internet when looking for some hike without my own wheels. The Frome Valley Walkway (as officially named) is about 30 Km long along the River Frome from the River Avon in the centre of Bristol to the Cotswold Hills in South Gloucestershire. I recommend to get a map before enjoying (all or part of the) walk.

Lovely countryside walking

Ive walked several parts of the Frome valley walkway between Yate and the city centre. in particular around Winterbourne, Frampton cotterill and Frenchay as I lived near for a few years. This was my go to place for a stroll out a couple of times a week.
Lots of variety along the walk, wellies needed in several places. So much wildlife along the route too. Highly recomended if you enjoy countryside walks.

this walk you can take from many points depending on how far you want to walk. Most keen walkers start from snuff mills but we today started at Frampton Cotterell .You can park near the globe inn and find the path by the Church (you can take the path through the field or the yard) follow carefully the path through paths noticing the rocks at one point and crossing bridges along edge of the fields ,either follow straight on the river walk or across the field following the signs and turn for Iron acton (and the Pub) and meeting up with the walk again.Wear good shoes or boots as muddy in places .

Some walk routes take you from spectacular to more spectacular scenery. Others, like this walk (22 miles from Bristol floating harbour to Old Sodbury) follows the modest River Frome from its merging with the Avon back to its source in Doddington. It's an education, not only in geography but in contrasting landscapes.
You could do this walk from source to finish; allow two days or one very long Summer day. But I think our direction was better. Because there's no denying it, the first sections through the city centre are grim. The river is no more than a rubbish-strewn culvert. enclosed in sections and muddy and derelict in others. But as you proceed up the valley, it develops a character of its own, and cuts through a deep, attractive gorge lined with quarries and quaint villages. The walkway is not best signposted, so do get a map - the council will supply a free booklet showing detailed maps and historical comments. Most of the time the walk hugs the riverbank, criss-crossing it with a series of footbridges. And further up the real beauty of the area comes out - rolling meadows, villages and farms and the changing aspect of the river. Beware, the walk is well-used and hence can get very muddy. Several nice pubs along the way and it you're into trains then the section where you go under the main railway viaduct at Winterbourne is spectacular.
