This is a new site for us another quiet site with riverside walks on the outer horse shoe bank of the River Severn. The commercial site sits next to the rally field. Nearby is the village of Newnham on Severn, Blakeney, and Lydney. The Parish comprises an area bounded by the River Severn, the Blackpool, Soudley and Bideford brooks. Encompassed within these boundaries are the villages of Awre, Blakeney and the hamlets of Etloe, Gatcombe, Two Bridges and Viney Hill – 86% of the population being in and around Blakeney village as this is on the main A48 road leading from Chepstow to Gloucester.
