Herefordshire Trail Walking Guidebook

by: Hereford Group Ramblers
The Herefordshire Trail is a circular route of about 154 miles, all within the county of Herefordshire, visiting all of the market towns and some delightful villages. The Trail starts from the Market House in Ledbury and visits Ross-on-Wye, Kilpeck, Pontrilas, Peterchurch, Whitney-on-Wye, Eardisley, Kington, Lingen, Brampton, Bryan, Leintwardine, Richard's Castle, Leominster, Bromyard, Bishop's Frome and Bosbury, plus all the scenic countryside in between.

The book describes the route in fifteen sections of roughly equal length. Most of the start and finish points of these sections are accessible by public transport and are suitable for parking a car. The book begins with practical information including a detailed table distances, a list of OS Explorer maps covering each section, bus routes and tourist information contact details.

Each section begins with an overview of the area's history and features and what to look out for. This is followed by detailed route finding instructions and the text is illustrated with some colour photographs.
