This walk over countryside uses the Marches Way as well as the Monnow Valley Walk. It is deceptively demanding, as although there are no steep climbs there is a lot of height gained and lost. The views are widespread and give a differemt aspect to a lot of old favourites, Garway Hill, The Graig and the Skirrid.

This walk is not dog friendly, due to high fences with no way under in places. Many of the stiles mentioned have now be replaced with fencing with steps over, quite high in some cases, very difficult to find due to lack of use of the paths and very old signage. Some of which is missing. The talk around is now also dated thus making it very difficult to find the next way points particularly between 13 and 19. Having said all of this it was well worth doing the walk.

A number of the stiles on this walk are now metal gates. The plank footbridge mentioned at Waymark 17 is no longer evident. A most enjoyable walk on an unseasonably warm October day. Lunch eaten with stunning views looking towards the Skirrid.

Very nice walk; watch out for very high grass in some meadows and take care on some of the badly rutted field gates; the church at Rowlestone very nice - worth a detour and a bench in the churchyard for picnic spot. Always leave some money in the church as a thanks. PJF
