Purton Hulks

Also known as the Ship Graveyard. Ships, barges and other craft were sunk on the tin river bank between the Severn and the Ship canal between 1909 and 1965 to protect the shipping route to Gloucester. Now an important historical site and an easy flat walk, though beware going in poor weather and the trail can get muddy.

It can be a there and back walk or perhaps a loop too. Map: Ordnance Survey Explorer OL14
