Thornbury’s Historic Borough Boundary

Walk: Sat 10 Sep 2016 10:00am - 1:00pm
Venue: Start: Museum Admission: FREE

The borough of Thornbury was created in 1252 by Richard de Clare, Earl of Gloucester and Lord of the Manor of Thornbury.  This walk of approx. two and a half miles follows as closely as possible the line of this historic boundary, highlighting and describing the remaining physical features still visible today.

We suggest you wear sturdy footwear, since – as well as pavements – there are some field paths and stiles.  The walk could take up to three hours. We regret this route is not suitable for wheelchairs.  No dogs please, except for guide dogs.  The walk is not suitable for children under 16 years.

Free car-parking is available in the Rock St. car park.  We suggest you use the Long-Stay section.

We meet outside the museum in Chapel Street.

This walk is FREE and is being offered by the museum as a contribution to the national Heritage Weekend and as part of South Gloucestershire Council’s Discover Festival.  As places are limited, please see below for how to book your free place.


Tickets are FREE but places are limited and should be booked in advance by visiting, phoning or emailing the museum
