CANCELLED This stunning one way route was picked by the late Mike Walker and takes you through the final dramatic stages of the Wye Gorge as it winds its way from the Severn at Chepstow up to historic Tintern Abbey.

From Chepstow we take in views of the castle and the Old Bridge before we join Offa's Dyke path, the ancient divide between England and Wales. The path winds its way 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. The remainder of the walk goes through deep leafy woods with hopefully gorgeous autumn colours and passes the Devil's Pulpit viewpoint. We then drop steeply down to cosy Tintern, crossing back over the river, and where we will have the chance to enjoy a pub, a cream tea, see the working water mill or Tintern Abbey before heading homewards.
