A walk upriver from Newport Transporter bridge to Caerleon Bridge along the west bank of the River Usk.

About this event

A walk upriver from the Newport Transporter bridge to Caerleon Bridge.

We will make our way along the west bank of the River Usk, gradually leaving the bustle of the city, passing the great, picturesque loop of river by St Julians and walking through the fields into the quiet, ancient town of Caerleon.

Gavin Jones ( Community Engagement Officer at Newport Transporter Bridge) and Storyteller Christine Watkins will be our guides along the way.

The short road trip by car or bus is what we are more used to today… but following the river on foot allows us to travel more gently and see familiar surroundings in a new light.

This is a varied and interesting walk, mostly along pavements and footpaths. It is just the thing if you like rivers, bridges (particularly ours - but there are lots in a short distance!), stories, walking…or just exploring the locality from a different point of view.

Please make sure you are in good health, have appropriate footwear, bring plenty of water and sun cream (hopefully needed!) and wet weather gear (hopefully not needed).

We will hopefully be collecting a 'Fflecsi bus' at 5.30pm from the Hanbury Arms in Caerleon to take us back to the Transporter Bridge, for those not making their own way home. You are more than welcome to stay on and enjoy an evening by the river and make your own way back - please make sure to tell us beforehand if you do, or do not, intend to return with us to the Bridge.
