T03D Three Choirs Way, Day 4, Sunday 4 June

Links between the three cathedral cities and county towns of Gloucester, Hereford and Worcester date to the early 18th century with music festivals being held. This more recently established Three Choirs Way links the three cities passing through some of the landscapes that inspired some of England’s most famous classical music composers.

This walk will follow the 33-mile section between the cathedrals at Worcester and Gloucester. We will travel by coach to / from the start / finish for each day’s walk.

On Day 4 we walk through the village of Ashleworth and just beyond we reach the River Severn. After a short stretch beside the river, we leave it behind to walk to the village of Maisemore. Crossing the West Channel at Maisemore Bridge we walk across fields of the River Severn floodplain to come to Alney Island, a local nature reserve. From there it is a short walk to the city of Gloucester and journey’s end at Gloucester Cathedral.

We will have time to stop and look at points of interest, the wildlife – flora and fauna and time to admire the views.

Bring a packed lunch and plenty to drink each day. Bring plenty of sun cream and suitable clothing.
