This is a circular walk
We start by crossing the River Wye by Brockweir Bridge and then pay a brief visit to the Moravian Church in Brockweir. We will then walk north through the lanes of St Briavels Common and continue on the English side of the Wye through farmland and woods. At times we will follow the line of Offa’s Dyke, before descending back to the Wye at Lower Redbrook. After crossing the Wye on a disused railway bridge we can visit the Boat Inn. After lunch, we will return on the Welsh side of the Wye, initially walking along the side of the river before climbing to Whitebrook and then continuing through Cuckoo Wood and Bargain Wood before finally descending to Brockweir Bridge. Although this walk traces the route of the River Wye, it is quite hilly, with about 2800 feet of ascent.
