Out of Chipping Sodbury I just followed the Frome valley way as far as Old Sodbury, which is an easy route across fields, so I cannot comment on the marked route further north, it may be just as good....

Walk this route

I've only walked part of this route (Chipping Sodbury - Hounds Rd Bus Stop via Tormarton to a point on the west bound road to Hinton), I didn't go all the way into Marshfield, instead I was following the Cotswold Way down to Cold Ashton. This bit is pretty but there is a steep clamber up through the manicured sheep fields to higher ground and closer to the A46, not good for wheels here but good views North West open up behind you. A46 at this point is a busy road and you are crossing at a partly blind corner, the Cotswold Way is not well routed here. The route to Marshfield carried on south, up a small hill on open ground. I enjoyed it for the views, peace & quiet and the climbs that were not too vicious but, crossing the A46 does have to be taken seriously as this is not a good crossing point with heavy fast traffic and not much of a view....


Walk this route

A short, pleasant stroll along paved and gravelled footpaths through woods along the course of the River Frome, taking you from Yate’s vast, brash modern shopping centre (and very well-connected bus hub) to the very different environment of Chipping Sodbury’s magnificent old stone high street. Chalk and cheese, these close neighbouring towns! No barriers along the route....

Mockymock added Yatchi two, a new walk from Yate to Chipping Sodbury

Walk this route

This short route is safe and OK to walk but takes a little bit of a long route round by road when there is a more direct and greener route, plus the plot is a little wayward at the Yate end where it flies across the shopping centre carpark rather than routing along any of the pedestrian walkways. I will share a quicker, neater version....


Walk this route

There is a pub in Tormarton, and from there the route continues on the Cotswold Way national trail across the busy, fast A46 and descends the Cotswold ridge through the manicured landscaped grounds of the Dodington Park estate to Old Sodbury, where there is another pub. The remainder of the walk is on flat ground through fields, then around the outer edge of Chipping Sodbury’s housing estate sprawl and into the town, all in the company of the River Frome....
