A route along the entire Severn Valley from the source to the sea. Starting on the wild Plynlimon plateau in Mid-Wales, the route takes in Hafren Forest, Llanidloes, Newtown, Welshpool, Shrewsbury and Ironbridge before heading south through Worcester, Tewkesbury and Gloucester to Severn Beach then linking along the Avon into Bristol City Centre.
