Château-Gontier Walk & Henley Way

Chateau Gontier Walk after improvements were made in 2020

Riverside routes to and from the town

Within easy walking distance of the town centre, Château-Gontier Walk and Henley Way link the Market Yard and the town centre with Welshmill and northern Frome.

Dedicated to Frome’s twin town in France, Château-Gontier Walk is a popular lunchtime spot for people working in the town centre. It’s also a great place to just stop to watch the world (and river) go by.

Find out more about Château-Gontier and the Frome Twinning Association.

Things to do

  • Eat your sandwiches, read a book, generally relax and reflect at Château-Gontier Walk
  • Watch the local canoe club on the river from Henley Way
  • Daydream your visit to Château-Gontier, an interesting and historical town in the Mayenne region of France

Future plans

We’d like to make some improvements to Château-Gontier Walk in the future – the retained beds are showing their age now, and there are opportunities for some really exciting planting to enhance this area.

We’re still at the ideas stage just now – and there are lots of ideas being considered.

If you have any comments or suggestions please get in touch. Send in your thoughts and ideas to Rob Holden our Environment Manager.

Alternatively, pop in to the Town Hall to have a chat or speak to one of our Rangers in the park.
