Walks around Hereford and Leominster Guidebook

Walks around Hereford and Leominster Guidebook

by: Mike Ledlie
This book describes twenty great walks around Hereford plus some around Leominster. All of the walks are accessible by public transport as well as by car. The walks feature pastures, orchards and especially woods, hills and streams or rivers. Iron Age hill forts were usually built on hilltops, and many now have attractive woodland and/or good views, and several of the walks visit these evocative reminders of the past.

Nature reserves are also usually in delightful settings, and the walks, especially those around Fownhope, take in several of these, including some belonging to the Herefordshire Wildlife Trust. The River Wye is one of the finest in Britain, and Hereford is the only city it goes through, so it will be no surprise to find that five of the walks have a section along the Wye.

Each of the walks begins with a side panel giving a brief summary of the walk, the starting point with grid reference and directions how to get there by public transport. Car parking options are also given. The following comprehensive navigation instructions are written in numbered paragraphs and a sketch map shows the paragraph numbers to show where you are on the map.
