This coming weekend we are heading back to the Wye Valley for our third excursion along the banks of the River Wye. Our goal is to have cumulatively walked along the entirety of the Wye from source (or as close as we can get to it) to its mouth at Chepstow where it spills into the Severn. It seems to be becoming a tradition to do a circular walk whenever we visit this stunning part of he country; for practicality (as public transport links are relatively poor in the area and accommodation is scarce) we will be upholding this tradition again this time.
With accommodation booked for an overnight stay in Redbrook (about 4 miles from Monmouth), we will begin and end our walk at this lovely location on the riverbank. We will be mainly following Offa’s Dyke path down the ‘English’ side of the river (the river marks the border between England and Wales for much of its journey), crossing at Bigsweir Bridge, as we did on our Tintern circular and heading back up the ‘Welsh’ side of the river toward Monmouth before crossing again and circling back round.
You know the drill by now; pictures, pubs and flowery description to follow.
Keep an eye on our Instagram and Twitter for snaps we take and live updates on our progress (or lack thereof).
As always, thanks for reading. Our account of the second circular we did in the Wye Valley, starting and ending in Tintern, will be up soon. If you didn’t catch our first circular walk in the Wye Valley, please find it here. Looking forward to what will be a fantastic walk to add to Greenspace Walking’s total mileage. Please see our Milestones post for a summary of our first 100 miles and what to expect in the near future.
