- Two River Walk TWO RIVERS WALK (Amended May 2020)
PLEASE NOTE THE DRIVE CALLED “POWELLS ACRES” AT THE END OF THE STRETCH OF RIVER AFTER THE MEDICAL CENTRE IS PRIVATE LAND. THE WALK ROUTE TURNS RIGHT HERE AWAY FROM THE RIVER INTO KINGSTON AVENUE
The Two River Walk (interactive map link provides information about particular points around the walk. The pdf above provides a better diagram of the actual route). The walk follows the river Land Yeo as it flows through the historic Victorian town of Clevedon and the Blind Yeo with its countryside and coastal views. A circular flat walk of about 6 miles paved in places with some road crossings it is not suitable for wheelchairs or pushchairs and very dependent on weather conditions. Appropriate footwear is required too, as it can be muddy. Take great care at the few road crossings.
Mike and David along with 14 members of the civic society have explored the wonders of this walk and here is the photograph to prove it.
Starting at Tickenham Church car park – Time to complete 2 hours distance 3.5 miles
Route – from the Church follow the river to the Moorend Spout spring, then follow the Parish Brook back to the causeway, returning to the Church, followed by a circular walk across the fields to Tickenham Mill.
If it has been raining prior to the walk it could be muddy in places – appropriate footwear may be required.
Start at the trout farm lakes
Enter Tower House Wood – walking towards Wraxhall
After walking down the lane past Bird Combe Court, cross the field then follow the river down stream back to the trout farm
Jacklands Bridge Nailsea Road, – near the Trout Farm.
This walk is enjoyable at any time of year – apart from after heavy rain. It takes around an hour and when you return to the trout farm refreshments may be purchased from the cafe.

You.may recall some while ago I came along to your group meeting to talk about my project to track and record otter activity on the Land Yeo.
More recently I’ve been appointed a voluntary river bailiff for The Angling Trust and Fish Legal an organisation representing Angling in the UK and working in partnership with The Environment Agency on fishery protection.
I’d like the opportunity to meet up with you again to tell you about the work of The Angling Trust and our Building Bridges project to promote responsible and legal angling.
If you’d like to hear more I’d be happy to come along and give a short informative talk. Thank you.
