Summary: The Severn Way is a long distance walking route which follows the River Severn downstream from source to sea. Beginning at the source high on Plynlimon in the Cambrian Mountains of Mid-Wales, the route heads to Llanidloes, Newtown and Welshpool. It then follows the towpath of the Montgomeryshire Canal passing through Shrewsbury and then along the Severn Gorge. It passes the cradle of the Industrial Revolution at Ironbridge before passing through Bridgnorth, Hampton Loade, Highley, Bewdley, Stourport-on-Severn, Worcester, Upton-upon-Severn and Tewkesbury. It enters Gloucestershire and passes through Gloucester itself before passing Berkeley Castle and following the Severn Estuary to Bristol via Lawrence Weston, Shirehampton and through the Avon Gorge.
