Herefordshire and the Wye Valley Short Walks

Herefordshire and the Wye Valley Short Walks

by: Neil Coates
This attractive full colour guide is the ideal companion for short walks, providing 20 splendid routes suitable for all the family. Features include clear and easy-to-follow instructions plus detailed Ordnance Survey 1:25,000 scale Explorer mapping with the route clearly highlighted, and specially commissioned photographs. These scenic routes range from gentler rambles for country walking newcomers among the pastures and orchards of Shobdon and Ruckhall, to more adventurous walks in the Golden Valley, along Hergest Ridge, to enjoy the views over the Wye from Coppet Hill.

There are twenty routes to choose from, colour coded by length and difficulty; green for easy; blue for modest length with some climbing and red for more challenging walks. An introductory chapter gives an overview of this beautiful rural area which provides some idyllic walking countryside. Essential practical information at the beginning of each walk includes start location, distance, time, parking and route features. There are notes about places of interest and full colour photographs and a quiz question for children for each walk (answers provided).
