Local Walks and History

A Forgotten Landscape – Walks around the area.

A Forgotten Landscape is a large-scale natural and cultural heritage project, funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund Landscape Partnership Scheme. The project seeks to conserve and enhance the Lower Severn Vale Levels, while improving community access to and engagement with the area’s unique natural and cultural heritage.

Unfortunately the funding is running out and the project will come to an end in September 2018. Part of its heritage is a lovely book entitled Tales of the Vale and an Oral history of interviews carried out with local people, of all ages, some of whom you may well know!

There are also maps of 10 regular walks and 5 easy access routes. Some of these are around Oldbury on Severn as well as other areas of the Lower Seven Vale.

Our Community Website has reached agreement with the Project to host this information after it closes. For a limited period hard copies of these publications will also be available on request at the Oldbury on Severn Community shop.
