Walking in the Wye Valley and Forest of Dean

Walking in the Wye Valley and Forest of Dean

by: Alastair Ross
This book covers the Wye Valley south of Ross-on-Wye. These lower reaches have forced a passage through sandstone and limestone hills to form a spectacular gorge of exceptional beauty. The area has been cherished since the dawn of tourism for its dramatic and captivating landscapes, turbulent history and varied wildlife. Ten walks in this book explore these lower reaches of the Wye valley and despite its renown you will find plenty of quiet glades and tranquil viewpoints.

The remaining ten walks cover the Forest of Dean, a wedge of elevated land between the Wye and the Severn, which was established as a royal hunting forest in 1066. The forest is now the largest area of ancient woodland in England and its long and varied history has bequeathed an intriguing blend of industrial history and great natural beauty.

Each walk chapter includes an overview description with details of how to get to the start. This is followed by detailed route finding instructions in numbered paragraphs which correspond to points on a sketch map. Some additional background information is provided.
