Relaxing walk from our hotel (The George Inn). An hour each way across the fields. On the bank between harbour and estuary there are several signs indicating local landmarks, history, etc.

Headed to Lydney harbour after staying in Lydney overnight - interesting place, great river views. Nearby steam railway and what appears to be an old bus storage depot. Lots of old boats covered in green slime too. Worth a stroll round.
