A stroll along the banks of the River Wye, heading north from Ross. You will pass the remains of Wilton Castle on the opposite bank and have the opportunity to spot otters and kingfishers, which are often seen along this section of the River Wye. Swans, ducks and Canada geese are usually in evidence, especially when they on the steps of the riverside inn waiting to be fed bread. This is followed by a gentle climb through farmland, with beautiful views of the Wye Valley across to the Welsh Mountains and back to Ross. Two stiles must be crossed before Brampton Abbotts Church is reached. It is an historic and somewhat quaint church, which is well worth exploring.

The return is south from the church, again through farmland and country lanes. The return to Ross-on-Wye gives an opportunity for a pleasant riverside drink or to detour up into the historic market town to see the church and ancient market house. Do not attempt this walk if the River Wye is likely to be in flood. The riverside footpath will be either flooded or extremely muddy.
