Bream Heritage Walk

Walker’s Comments

Below are comments sent in via the FEEDBACK form. Your feedback has allowed us to make improvements to the walk 🙂 .

    The walk was very well signposted and easy to follow. The paths were clear an not overgrown. I think that the distance of 6.5 miles is wrong,I estimate it to be one mile longer. I regularly walk 6 miles in about 2.5 hours, and it took me this time to reach point number 38, up the road from Whitecroft. So perhaps a re measure is necessary! Thanks for providing me with a lovely walk.


    Without the optional extensions to the walk the distance is 6.5 miles.


  • JF – from Scotland

    What a magnificent guide to a rewarding journey of discovery! We missed some of the markers because we were so engrossed in the text from previous markers. (Sometimes also we lost mobile coverage.) It was, however, reassuring to have frequent markers on the way.
    We’d need to do it again to do it full justice, but as we are visiting from Scotland we are unlikely to do it again. If we lived locally we would definitely repeat it to discover more.
    We also liked that the information is bang up to date.
    It took us three hours, without doing the little diversions suggested.
    Huge congratulations to all involved in this venture.

    Downloaded map from website, (not an option above) hence didn’t realise any additional information available when walking the route. Thoroughly enjoyable, started at 40 due to where we are staying.


  • AG – from Gloucestershire

    Loved the walk and will be back to complete at a later date.

    Unfortunately we went wrong at the start and walked down Parkend Rd instead of High St. doubled back and walked to Hang Hill. Really loved the walk but wished we had picked up a printed map which hopefully would tell us about the interesting buildings.


    Yes the booklet has a map and information on the walk.


  • DL – from England

    Description of route and signposts here are not clear enough. We went the wrong way, going along a path behind some houses until it was impassable (due to overgrown bramble/nettles and green fly tipping) then we had to climb over a fence and get back down to the road! This meant we missed parts of the route in Bream near the stone stile and Cider Barn but we didn’t feel like retracing our steps by then. You’re probably meant to do a sharp right from 52 to 53 but that’s not clear at all. We’re experienced walkers and combined following the route booklet with an OS map on the phone so not totally daft!!


    You missed a waymark sign on a wooden post at 52.
