The route from Worcester to Bewdley continued along the Severn
Way entirely alongside the Severn River.
The Severn is a lovely unspoiled river and this it remains along its
length all the way from Worcester to Bewdley and beyond, with the adjoining
footpath an unchanging muddy track along its banks. I met no one along its
length with whom to share my walk.
took the opportunity of adjacent B roads here and there to relive the unchanging
river scenery but I seemed to be beyond the region of Tudor houses at every
reached Stourport on Severn later in the afternoon focussed mostly on finding
accommodation. I also knew that from here I had the option of a canal route
north to Wolverhampton (rather than round it) as an alternative to the Severn
Way. But there was only one local Inn with overpriced rooms so I pressed on
along a rather dreary B road to Bewdley given advice of it being a pretty town
with more scope for Pub accommodation and B&B’s.
Bewdley turned out to have a lovely riverside frontage and several
nice pubs and numerous pubs, one of which had modest B&B accommodation in
which eventually lay my weary head.
