Starting in Newent which is one of the oldest inhabited towns in the Forest of Dean, it has been settled since at least Roman times and appeared in the 1086 Domesday Book of William the Conqueror, we'll work our way through farm land to the village of Glasshouse where we will then climb through woodland to the top of Mayhill.   There are spectactular views in all directions from here including over the River Severn, out to the Malverns and if the weather is clear we may even see as far as the Black Mountains in Wales.  We'll head back through more woodlands to the village of Clifford's Mense before the last stretch through farmland to Newent and a well deserved pint,

Dogs are welcome on this walk but we will be passing through farm land where they will need to be under control.  There are also one or two styles that may prove difficult for larger breeds.
