Ledbury Town Trail

The Town Trail runs from Ledbury Station in the north to the Ross Road in the south and follows the route of the former Gloucester to Ledbury canal and subsequent railway. It is much used by walkers and cyclists. From the station to Bridge Street, the track mainly follows the old railway track along a high embankment shaded by tall trees and well-drained. From Bridge Street southwards, the track is more sheltered, with a mix of habitats, including a deep cutting and planted woodland.

Ledbury Naturalists Field Club carried out a survey from March to October 1999 and found a rich variety of wildlife, including 183 species of flowers, 35 of trees, 35 of birds (including blackcap, goldcrest and chiffchaff) and 15 types of butterfly. The club found a much greater range of flowers than in a previous survey of 1965.
