2018 Programme

Saturday 13 January 2018     

The Redbrook walk: about 8 miles with a couple of fairly stiff but shortish climbs. Quite muddy in places. Good for dogs - they can join us in the pub.  Coffee stop at the churchyard high above the river, then on the river in ‘The Boat’ at Redbrook about noon for lunch.  Finish back in Monmouth about 3pm.

Trellech & Harold’s Stones:  This dog friendly walk leads out of Trellech towards Tintern. Forest tracks then take you past Cleddon Bog and through Ninewells Wood to Catbrook Village Green. Footpaths and lanes lead to Cleddon Shoots waterfall, from where you return past Cleddon Hall along the path to Cotland and the lane to Trellech.  It is a generally flat walk of about 6.5 miles (10km) with few stiles that makes use of woodland cart tracks and heathland, there are some spectacular views along the way!

Wynd Cliff and 365 steps

Just over 10kms/6.5 miles from the Upper Wyndcliff Car Park (51.6720,  -2.6897) which is about half a mile up the side road on the right of the A466 (Chepstow Road) between Tintern and St Arvans.

The 365 steps are at the start of the walk and whilst the top section is probably not dog friendly (a metal ladder construction) there is an alternative route from the car park and we can all join together at the top.

- 3 ascents and 1 steep descent worthy of note.

- 16 or so gates and a host of stiles all of which are dog friendly.

- A combination of paths, bridleways and a short section of very quite road.

- A mixture of woodland and farmland with great views of the River Wye and the Estuary with both Severn Crossings.

- Tintern Abbey, 2 medieval churches (1 derelict), and a weather station.  (with thanks to Di & Pete)
