The Wye Valley Walk

The Wye Valley Walk

by: The Wye Valley Walk Partnership
The Wye Valley Walk follows the River Wye for 136 miles from the river's mouth at Chepstow to the slopes of Plynlimon in Powys, criss-crossing the border between England and Wales. It leads through a dramatic gorge, dense woodland beneath limestone crags, and past peaceful river meadows in some of the most superb scenery in the heart of the Wye Valley Area of Outstanding Beauty, the birthplace of tourism and the Picturesque movement. On the way, it passes historic Tintern Abbey, Monmouth and Ross-on-Wye, crosses the rolling landscape of Herefordshire with its black and white villages, famed cider orchards, landscaped parks and fertile agricultural plains and climbs finally into the rugged uplands of Powys.

This new edition of the official guidebook published by Cicerone provides a step-by-step route description in 17 stages each with full colour OS Explorer map extracts.
