Herefordshire and the Wye Valley

Herefordshire and the Wye Valley

Herefordshire is renowned for its hop-yards and cider-apple orchards, threaded by peaceful footpaths, lanes and byroads amidst rich pastures and wooded limestone ridges grazed by the famous terracotta-coloured cattle.

Herefordshire is renowned for its hop-yards and cider-apple orchards, threaded by peaceful footpaths, lanes and byroads amidst rich pastures and wooded limestone ridges grazed by the famous terracotta-coloured cattle. But the county also has a wild side; the huge sandstone wall of the Black Mountains rises in the west, the Forest of Dean and the remarkable Wye Gorge fringe the south and the Malvern Hills offer a dramatic eastern boundary. With walks in and around villages, modest strolls to farmyard chapels, Wye-side meadows and windswept hilltops and longer walks into the more remote corners of this undiscovered county.

The Wye Valley and the Forest of Dean are linked both by geography - the forest forming the eastern rim of the valley for much of the Wye's lower reaches - and by history, since they share a common heritage as a border between England and Wales. the imposing ruins of medieval castles in the area are a striking reminder of ancient warfare in the area. This guide focuses on the middle and lower sections of the Wye Valley, roughly where the river leaves its upper reaches in mid-Wales to enter Herefordshire. Hay-on-Wye, Hereford and the walled town of Chepstow are also covered, as is the classic view over the winding Wye Valley from Symonds Yat. Pathfinder® Guides are Britain's best loved walking guides.
