Chepstow to Monmouth

Distance: 16-17 miles (25-27km). High point: 230m (760ft) Upper Wyndcliff.

This section of the walk is almost entirely made up of paths through woodland along the celebrated lower Wye gorge. Expect dense woodland, narrow and sometimes steep paths emerging to viewpoints at Upper Wyndcliff and Whitestone. The walk also visits some attractive villages, most notably Tintern with its famous Abbey. Thenew route  (as in the new Cicerone guide) of the WVW south of and through Tintern village is now waymarked.  The old route is still available but the new route offers improved views across the Wye Valley and of the Abbey when approaching Tintern from the south and also passes the Tintern Limekilns.  In the village the new route takes you down past the Abbey to the riverside before returning to the main road and gives the opportunity to see the heart of the village and use local facilities.The last few miles of the walk drop to the river, leaving the woods to follow the grassy banks of the Wye into Monmouth town.
