Teme Valley Walk

Teme Valley Walk

Teme Valley Walk

by: David Milton
The River Teme rises in the Kerry Hills of Powys and joins the River Severn just below Worcester. It flows through a landscape steeped in history and shaped by human conflict, industry and endeavour (the Welsh Marches), before reaching the rich farmlands of Herefordshire and Worcestershire, with their hop-yards and cider apple orchards. The Teme is one of the most beautiful and fast-flowing rivers in the country but remains quite secretive for much of its length. Rights of Way along it are limited, in part due to the fact that the river was never more than locally important as a navigation, and so was not provided with towpaths as were, say, the Severn and Thames.

For this walk, therefore, David Milton has attempted to remain as close to the river as is possible but has not been afraid to take to the hills along its course where footpaths, public transport or accommodation needs dictate. It starts in Worcester and ends, after visiting the source of the river, in Newtown, a total distance of 93 miles. The guide provides a very detailed route description supported by sketch maps and gives an impressive amount of detail relating to places of interest and events along the way in separate text panels. An introduction gives practical information including public transport and accommodation information.

The route is divided into 8 stages beginning at the following locations:
Worcester to Knightwick - 13 miles
Knightwick to Great Witley - 10 miles
Great Witley to Tenbury Wells - 13.5 miles
Tenbury Wells to Ludlow - 10 miles
Ludlow to Leintwardine - 11.5 miles
Leintwardine to Knighton - 10 miles
Knighton to Felindre - 13 miles
Felindre to Newtown - 12 miles
The route finishes at Newtown after visiting the source of the River Teme.
