Tickets £10 if bought via E-ticket or £12.50 on the gate. https://www.chaddesleyraces.co.uk/fixtures/worcestershire/ I have been informed that there are snack bars there for getting a coffee and something to eat, but you are more than welcome to bring your own picnic basket. Meeting point to be announced.
This walk around Stourport on Severn makes use of the Severn way plus the Geo parkway to create a fantastic circular. It runs on mostly flat paths with a couple of moderate climbs. On the way you'll enjoy waterside sections along the River Severn and the Staff Worc Canal and it includes Hartlbury Common and Leapgate Country Park. Meet at the top end of the fairground carpark by Ye Old Crowne. From Stourport bridge we pick up the Severn Way and follow it towards Bewdley past some woodland trails and views over to Ribbesford Woods. We then pick up the the Geopark Way and head SE to Blackstone and Burlish Top, an elevated position providing stunning views over the surounding countryside. We then follow the canal to Upper Mitton and take a break at the Rock Tavern for an optional drink, then east to explore Leapgate Country Park and Hartlebury Common. Leaving the common the route picks up the riverside path again, passing the River Stour and the canal basin before returning to Stourport Bridge. The walk is around 7 miles so ensure you have appropriate boots, water and a level of fitness.
