This guidebook includes 30 day walks in the stunning and varied lands of the Wye Valley. From its source on Plynlimon in the Welsh Cambrian mountains, down along the Wales-England border through Hay-on-Why, Hereford and Chepstow to the Severn Estuary.
The routes in this guide are circular, and range in length between 5 and 15km. Every route description is accompanied by an annotated OS map, and includes details on points of interest along the way to enhance your wandering.
The Wye Valley is known for its beauty and wide range of scenery; a walkers' paradise at any time of year. From the high moorland near the source, down through gentle green hills, before diving into the woods and limestone gorge near the sea.
Practical details such as the amount of ascent and timings information are included for every walk, as are details on public transport and parking facilities. Other useful information on the river's history, geology and wildlife ensure that this is an ideal companion to exploring the impressive range of walking the Wye Valley offers.
The northings and eastings for the grid reference for the start and finish of this walk were inadvertently transposed. The correct grid reference is ST 558 993.
The path from the A470 to the edge of the woodland south-west of Boughrood Bridge has been extensively repaired by Powys County Council, with significant drainage works and improvements to the surfacing of the path. One suggestion is to use this path for the initial ascent at the start of the walk, and to descend through the buttercup fields at the end.
Page 42 (Walk 4) paragraph 4 in the printed edition.
States "....When this reaches a forest road ignore the path straight ahead..." and suggests a detour because the path " peters out". This is incorrect. Our reader walked that path on 14 February 2017 [today] and it is quite clear emerging at a farm by the bridge at Tintern Cross where the route continues straight ahead along the lane.
