Keynsham to Pensford

Monday 5th December 2016

So, there was no marker, monument or statue to denote the end of the Two Rivers Way… I’d read in advanced that it finishes at the A4 Bristol-to-Bath road, where the Community Forest Path (about fifty miles) begins.

More pressingly, I needed to get back to my car and I was a good couple of hours away with some ‘urbanised’ walking to follow immediately.

Pensford to Keynsham (2 Rivers Way)

Monday 5th December 2016

This was a walk that I had hoped to do a fortnight earlier, but for a surge in heavy rainfall and extreme flooding in some parts of North Somerset and BaNES.

In completing a walk between Pensford and Keynsham, I would then be able to say that I had walked the entire duration of the 2 Rivers Way long-distance footpath.

Walk Leading from Pensford

Sunday 10th April 2016

My first walk of the year has been completed – I am, of course, referring to a walk in which I am the leader, within Brunel 20s and 30s Walking Group.

Our walk would begin in Pensford, nestled neatly in between Bristol and Bath. As you may’ve seen on my pre-walks last month; we’d initially be following the Two Rivers Way before heading to Stanton Prior and then, allowing the Three Peaks Walk to lead us back to our cars…

This time, I would have to do it with a trail of people behind me. Read more of this post

Pensford and the Two Rivers Way (Part 3)

Saturday 12th March 2016

One week after my first attempt at this walk, I headed out to tackle it again, having already decided upon a slight variation of my original route. There was a determination to ‘get it right now‘, before I could move on to walking elsewhere.

I’d thought about submitting to lead this walk today – as I write this, in fact – but the thought of walking the same paths for three consecutive weekends did not appeal. I’ve been walking elsewhere this weekend and you’ll get to read about that soon. Now, let’s return to Pensford.

Pensford and the Two Rivers Way (Part 1)

Sunday 6th March 2016

In this series of posts, I’ll be walking from the village of Pensford (situated between Bristol and Bath) and then following the Two Rivers Way alongside the River Avon, before diverting to Stantonbury Hill.

This is an opportunity for me to create a walk in excess of ten-miles long that I would feel comfortable leading with Brunel Walking Group.
