About this book

#Walking in the Wye Valley describes 30 day walks set across the valley of the Wye river, the fourth-largest river in England and Wales, and certainly the most scenic.

The circular walks are centred around Chepstow, Monmouth, Ross-on-Wye, Hereford, Hay-on-Wye, Builth Wells and Rhayader. Every route description is accompanied by an annotated OS map, and range in length between 3 and 9 miles. The walks explore limestone gorges and soaring moorlands, ancient routes, border castles and Tintern Abbey.

Practical details such as the amount of ascent and timings information are included for every walk, as are details on public transport and parking facilities. Other useful information on the river's history, geology and wildlife ensure that this is an ideal companion to exploring the impressive range of walking the Wye Valley offers.
