The Severn valley, as it flows past the Forest of Dean, has some delightful walks, quite different in character from walks in the Forest itself.
Westbury is only 5Km by footpath fron Green Bottom, so is itself within easy walking distance and there is a good pub, the Red Lion, in Westbury village.
The food at the Red Lion is excellent and good value, but be sure to book or you may be disappointed! For the less dedicated walker, park at the Red Lion and walk one of the several paths to the Severn, and in particular Garden Cliff, noted for its fossils. Then a stroll back to the pub for an evening meal. It is about 800 metres from the pub to the Severn, so sa gent;e evening stroll before dinner. This is the walk we did here, along side Westbury Brook, which drains Green Botton via Flaxley Brook. Photos taken about 6 p.m. 9th April 2011.
