Useful Information

Look out for the distinct Redwick Circular Walk Waymark Disc.

The ancient church of St. Thomas the Apostle is unusually large for a parish church on the Caldicot and Wentloog Levels. The church has a full-immersion baptistry, unique medieval stone carvings and a fine Victorian pipe organ salvaged from two previous churches. On the ancient south porch is a mark indicating the flood level caused by the Bristol Channel flood, 1607.

Walk interest : Average

Disappointing walk. Difficult to follow the route description right from the start. Walk is partly across furrowed fields deep in grass which are hard to cross. One field has grown maize so the route can't be followed and part is through some barns with no clear route.. A lot of the bridges and stiles are surrounded by brambles and stinging nettles and not well kept.
