The walk rises through a wood and gives lovely views across the Channel and to the Malverns. The climax is a visit to Mayhill, a National Trust property crowned with 100 trees planted to mark the Queen's Jubilee. The view from the top goes from the Brecon Beacons, the Black Mountains, Forest of Dean, the large loop of the River Severn, Cotswolds and Malverns.

Used Roger's advice and parked at Glasshouse. The fact there is a pub here had nothing to do with it! Newent Woods are a quagmire at the moment. Bring gaiters and a sense of humour. Once out onto May Hill, you are rewarded with some superb views. A lovely introduction to a new area for us. Thanks for the walk. Photos at my blog for those interested -

Good walk with views to die for from the top of Mayhill. I found it easier to park by the pub in Glasshouse - there is a green there with parking for about 10 cars and the pub sells a good pint of real ale! I just picked up the walk from point 6. To make an easier walk, all you have to do then is turn left at point 19 and walk down the hill back to the pub.

There is now (31/05/04) no access to the footpath at waypoint 13, due to building works. I suggest that the centre-most lane is taken at waypoint 12, which emerges on the road just above the “Vine” pub – then proceed uphill to the “Yew Tree” pub at waypoint 14.
