Blaize Bailey is a viewpoint near Soudley Ponds overlooking the River Severn. It was constructed using stone from a disused railway bridge from Fetter Hill in the Forest.
The viewpoint looks over a horseshoe bend in the River Severn and on a fine day, you can see Newnham-on-Severn below and the Cotswold Hills on the opposite side of the river, plus Gloucester Cathedral to the north.
There are woodland walks in all directions, including down the hill to Soudley Ponds or along the ridge offering a circular walk.
There is limited parking near the viewpoint which is accessed via a small hamlet between Newnham and Littledean. Parking at Soudley is also possible with an uphill climb to the viewpoint.
