The Wye Valley Walk is river and hill walking at its finest, with beautiful and interesting landscape every step of the way.
This, the official guide to the Way, has been produced in conjunction with the Wye Valley Walk Partnership. The partnership works to conserve and enhance the natural beauty of the area, and team works hard to maintain the area's beauty for future generations.
Passing sites such as Tintern Abbey, Goodrich Castle, Hereford Cathedral and Hay-on-Wye, the walk is accessible throughout the year and is suitable for all walkers with a reasonable level of fitness.
The Wye is one of the most important rivers for nature conservation. The Wye and its banks are designated as a Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI) from the source to the mouth, one of the few British rivers to receive this designation.
You can keep a record of your walk by collecting the WVW passport stamps along the route. Once you have collected six stamps – which must include Chepstow and Hafren you can send from your exclusive badge and completion certificate from the Wye Valley Walk Partnership.
page 58/59 Lydbrook Bridge Closure and Diverson 2017
The published route of the Wye Valley Walk is closed where the path crosses the river at Lydbrook Rail Bridge (National Grid Ref: SO 587 176) due to the unsafe condition of this former railway bridge. Download a copy of the map diversion.
As a consequence:
If walking upstream: walkers are advised to leave the Wye Valley Walk just east of Huntsham Hill (NGR 567 168) and follow the riverside footpath downstream to Huntsham Bridge (NGR 567 182), cross the Wye using this narrow road bridge and then, turning right, follow the riverside footpath upstream all the way to re-join the Wye Valley Walk at Lydbrook Bridge.
It is possible to remain on the south side of the river from Huntsham Hill and follow the Wye Valley Walk to the village of Lydbrook but as you cannot cross the river at Lydbrook the options between that point and Kerne Bridge necessitate walking along sections of the busy B4234 with no pavement.
If walking downstream: remain on the same side of the river at Welsh Bicknor (NGR 587 177) until reaching Huntsham Bridge (NGR 568 182,) cross the river on this narrow road bridge and take the footpath on the left to walk upstream to re-join the Wye Valley Walk just east of Huntsham Hill (NGR 567 168).
Stage 7 (pg. 81)
The text should read as follows:
…Enter the field and head straight across to a stile on the edge of the road. The route turns right and follows the road for approx 50 metres. Cross over the road here (take care of fast-moving traffic) and up the steps onto the floodbank.
