Arlingham is a village and civil parish in the Stroud District of Gloucestershire, England. The 2001 Census recorded a parish population of 410, increasing to 459 at the 2011 census (226 males, 233 females with 176 Households). The parish contains the hamlets of Milton End, Overton and Priding The next parish to the east is Fretherne with Saul.GeographyArlingham lies at the western end of the horseshoe loop of the River Severn, known as the "Horseshoe Bend", looking across the water to Newnham on Severn and the Forest of Dean. Access to Arlingham is across Fretherne bridge over the Gloucester and Sharpness Canal, or Sandfield Bridge at Saul Junction. Having the canal on one side and the River Severn on three sides of the parish and a single lane connecting it to the villages to the East, it has developed a distinct identity. Its rural character is still maintained, having some ten working farms with dairy and beef herds and arable land. Although close to the river, unlike areas upriver of Gloucester, Arlingham does not have a high flood risk.The area has many public footpaths, including a section of the Severn Way. An illustrated map, detailing four circular walks, can be downloaded from the Red Lion Web Site. Further walks can be found on the Gloucestershire Fitness Walks, Follow My Walks, Walking the Severn Way, My Viewranger, GPS routes and Strolling in the Stroud District websites. It is a six-mile walk, along the Severn Way, to the Wildfowl Trust at Slimbridge. There are also a number of longer walking/running routes provided by Arlingham Runners. The area is also close to the National Cycle Network route 41. Cycle routes are available on the Strava, Viewranger, MapymyRide and Garmin Websites, or see the Stroud District Cycle Map.
