Second that re the Purton Hulks - amazing place we stumbled upon by accident
There are some serious parking/resident issues with parking at Purton to visit the Hulks.

The parish council are recommending parking at the Sharpness Dockworkers Club and walking past the historic dock and up the towpath to the Hulks.
The Dockers club has facilities and a huge grass area for parking.
Also, the Sharpness docks itself is interesting and has a great viewport of the Severn Estuary.

Agree, there is parking by the swing bridge in Purton but not a great amount. Walking from the Dockers' Club makes sense. There is a view point come picnic area overlooking the entrance to the Sharpness docks. Check on shipping movements and watch a ship enter or leave the harbour entrance.

I think we followed advice from friends of Purton website and parked in the car park opposite the church

We’re just having lunch at Tan Hill. We opted to stay in the Cali rather than the “sheltered” tables they offered. When we arrived real feel temp was -5deg C. Brisk walk up the hill with the dogs to work up an appetite (and get soaked) was followed by a decent meal in the comfort of the Cali. Really miss being in the pub though.

We have also spotted a fellow Cali on a 14 plate.
