Next Walk

 

 

Peter and Caroline’s walk, 25 April 2014

 

The first half of the walk is an ascent from Ashford in the Water to the Magpie Lead Mine (the best preserved remains of any British lead mine, dating from 1740).  On the ascent there are views across Ashford, the river Wye, and the Wye valley, and then walking across farm land.  From the lead mine it is all downhill, through a couple of fields and then large woods of the kind Hagrid kept his spiders in, on to the river Wye and thence back to Ashford.  Distance 4¼ miles, total ascent 200 metres, one stile on the way up, four on the way down. 

 

Meet at the Ashford Arms (DE45 1QB), in time to pre-order food (for menu go to www.ashford-arms.co.uk ,click on Restaurant and then click on Bar Menu Lunchtime), for a prompt start at 10:00.
