Whitbourne (Meadow Green) - Sapey Valley - Tedstone Delamere – Whitbourne (Meadow Green)

Discover a peaceful valley secreted away in this tranquil part of Herefordshire. We reach the valley of the Sapey Brook across fields and wander along this delightfully secluded way, then climb steeply to a forest track and follow this for upwards of half a mile.

A gentle climb then brings us into the pleasing hamlet of Tedstone Delamere. Passing its quirky 'great house' and its church-in-a-field, we saunter along a lane and down a footpath to revisit the Sapey Valley. Now we stay alongside the brook and take a different route back to the start and (if we've timed it right) a drink or a meal at the pub.

Information for Dog Owners: subject to the normal precautions to be observed by dog-owners when walking in sheep country, this walk is thought suitable for biddable dogs.

Lovely walk only one muddy patch in the woods leading back to the Sapey Valley. There is now a large car park at the village hall by the war memorial (way point 2) a donation can be paid at the hall door. The metal gate mentioned at way point 9 has been removed.

Superb Walk. Worth the subscription fee on its own. As per the previous comment, the gate at point 9 is padlocked. There is no path marking on the OS Map, so I am not 100% sure that we should be down here. Couple of bad stiles for dogs, which is a shame, cause there were few animals out and she could spend most of the walk off her lead. Recommended.

We did this walk on Aug Bank Hol Monday (2010) and thoroughly enjoyed it. The small diversion to the church is a must - if only for the wonderful views on the way down to it! Some observations : Waypoint 5 - the green lane was almost overgrown. Waypoint 9 - metal gate was padlocked. Waypoint 15 - the "derelict" house is being renovated. Waypoint 17 - downhill "path" can be slippy when wet.
