Bromyard, known as the Jewel in the Downs, is an ancient town in North Herefordshire dating back to the Norman Conquest, and its church still has many Norman features. It was a thriving town in the 16th to 18th centuries, and there are many fine buildings in the two dating from this period.

The walk follows the River Frome from the town northwards, across fields and through woodland. After heading round the grounds of a large house called the Black Venn, the walk changes direction, and begins a gentle climb up onto the Bromyard Downs, which rise 700 feet above the town.
The Downs were once part of the estate for the ancient Manor of Bromyard, but have been registered as common land for many years. There are extensive views as far as the Shropshire hills on a clear day as you walk across the top of the common.
