Walking in the Wye Valley

Walking in the Wye Valley

by: Mike Dunn
This guidebook includes 30 varied day walks of between 3 and 10 miles, in the valley of the Wye, the most scenic river in England and Wales, between Chepstow in the south and Plynlimon. The stunning landscape of the Wye Valley ranges from open moorland to wooded gorges and is dotted with the sites of Iron Age hillforts and castles from its source on Plynlimon in the Welsh Cambrian mountains, down along the Wales-England border through Rhayader, Hay-on-Why, Hereford, Ross-on-Wye and Chepstow to the Severn Estuary.

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.

The routes in this guide are all circular and each walk description begins with a fact-file panel giving start grid reference, distance, ascent, time, map reference, public transport and parking information. Every route description is accompanied by a colour Ordnance Survey 1:50,000 scale map, and includes details on points of interest along the way to enhance your wandering. An introduction gives useful information on the river's history, geology and wildlife to ensure that this is an ideal companion to exploring the impressive range of walking the Wye Valley offers.
