Three Choirs Way

The Three Choirs Way is a long distance, circular, footpath route between three Cathedral Cities and county towns; Gloucester, Hereford and Worcester, and between their Cathedrals.

It cements the association the respective choirs of each Cathedral has with each other which is celebrated annually in the Three Choirs Festival. As well as linking the Cathedrals the path also links the two rivers of these three counties, the Severn and the Wye.

The path has a distinctive badge on its waymarkers: a music stave and treble clef, and the motto ‘Blessed is the eye between Severn and Wye’.

The route is in ten sections as follows:

  • Gloucester to Clifford’s Mesne 10.4m
  • Clifford’s Mesne to Sleaves Oak 10.4m
  • Sleaves Oak to Hereford 10m
    Hereford to Ocle Pychard 9.6m
  • Ocle Pychard to Stanford Bishop 10m
  • Stanford Bishop to Broad Green 10m
  • Broad Green to Stanbrook Abbey 10m
  • Stanbrook Abbey to British Camp 10.9m
  • British Camp to Staunton 10.4m
  • Staunton to Gloucester 8.8m

These sections can be used as the basis for a ten day itinerary to walk the route, although some off-route walking would be required to reach overnight accommodation on some sections.
