Description

Wye Valley

Since 1971 the Wye Valley has been designated an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB), covering on average an 8km wide corridor from just south of Hereford in the north to Chepstow in the south. The lower Wye Valley, which has the AONB as its core, divides the lowlands of southern England and the uplands of South Wales, and incorporates significant parts of three counties, Herefordshire, Gloucestershire, and Monmouthshire. From the broad riverside meadows of the Herefordshire plain to the soaring limestone cliffs of the lower gorge near Chepstow, from the industrial heritage of the Forest of Dean in the east to the far-reaching views of the Trellech plateau in the west, the landscape of the lower Wye Valley can claim to be one of the most varied and picturesque places in Britain to explore on foot. The Wye Valley has long claimed to be the birthplace of British tourism.
