Hay-on-Wye is renowned for a number of reasons. It is known as the Book Capital of Britain - some say the world. It is also the place where the Wye Valley Walk and Offa's Dyke Path part company. Hay is also the centre of some of the best walking in Wales. After walking through Hay we cross the River Wye and follow the Wye Valley Walk for a while. From Llowes there is a short but sharp climb up onto the higher ground, with wonderful views of the Black Mountains and the Beacons. A walk along minor country roads takes us through Clyro and back to Hay-on-Wye.

There is an alternative Wye Valley Walk route(signed and gated)which we took from before Waymark 4 at 207422 to Waymark 5 which avoids walking alongside the busy main road and gives good views of the river valley and hills. Well worth the extra effort. Llowes Common, between Waymarks 6 and 7, is an interesting area, and makes a good sheltered place for lunch or a rest. Thanks to Pat Roberts for a good walk.
