The climbing is done early and the views from Gaer Hill are over to the Forest of Dean and then across the New Severn Bridge to the Channel and the South-West. The churches visited are both small and interesting. Done in the spring the walk is alive with birds and flowers, while in the autumn the colours are lovely.

Always walk in this area at Xmas - and over the last 10 years, a high percentage of my routes have come from this site. Thanks. This is a great walk, with plenty of variety. A lot of height is gained, but its not to onerous and of course - you are rewarded with the views. Drop down through the woods is exceptional. Tintern itself is wonderful. You can park in the Anchor Inn car park and redeem the £3 parking fee behind the bar when you make a purchase. The beer is highly recommended. Some photos on my blog at http://mappiman.blogspot.co.uk/2014/12/281214-welsh-rarebit.html Thanks for the walk.
