POSTPONED TO 10th NOV: 8 miles with 1,400' of height gain.

This stunning one way walk was designed by the late Mike Walker and takes you through the final dramatic stages of the Wye Gorge as it winds it's way from the Severn at spectacular Chepstow up to historic Tintern Abbey.

From Chepstow we take in views of the castle and the Old Bridge before crossing the river next to Brunel's mighty Wye Viaduct. With great views looking back over the Severn Bridge and estuary, we will join Offa's Dyke path up the eastern clifftops of the Wye Gorge. Broadrock affords some great views across the gorge to the Lover's Leap precipice and the jagged Wynd Cliff. 

Following Offa's Dyke, the ancient divide between England and Wales, through deep leafy woods to the Devil's Pulpit, we then drop down to cosy Tintern where we will have the chance to enjoy a pub, a cream tea, or maybe even a tour of the iconic Tintern Abbey before heading homewards.
