Risbury is a small village in rural Herefordshire, to the south of Leominster. It is best known for its Iron Age hill-fort which can be seen at the end of the walk. It is mostly covered in woodland and cannot be easily seen. However, the walk passes along the foot of it towards the end, as it returns to Risbury.

The walk heads across fields in gently rolling countryside, eventually reaching the village of Humber. It is a small but attractive village, dominated by the attractive Norman church, which seems oversized for the small village it serves. The walk then passes through the unusual woodland of remembrance, where graves are marked by trees or wildflowers, rather than traditional gravestones. It is a beautiful and inspiring place, where there has been a peaceful existence for more than two thousand years.

Some of the fields in the first part of the can be challenging and you may have to divert around the edge if there are crops growing.
