Walk - Iron Acton & Frampton Cotterill Circular walk - 5 miles : South West

This event is no longer available.

Iron Acton is an old mining village, just north of Bristol, where iron was once mined. Reminders of the mining past of the area can be seen from the walk, including a disused railway that was used to transport iron ore; the River Frome is crossed using the old railway bridge.

Much of the walk is alongside the river, as it follows the Frome Valley Walkway from Iron Acton to Frampton Cotterill, across meadows and through woodland. It is quite a shallow and rocky river in places and there are places along the walk where you can get to the water's edge and paddle.

This is a 5 mile walk with a 60 metre height gain. It is classed as an easy walk, so is suitable for most people

We start and end at in Iron Acton and we will stop for refreshments along the way, though do make sure to bring some snacks and a drink with you.
