Start points: Old Monnow Bridge, Monmouth (SO504125).
Distance: Approx 12 miles
Time to walk: Approx 6 hours
Description: The Trothy Valley was fought over for centuries… the Silures fought the Romans, the Welsh fought the Saxons, the Welsh fought the Normans and occasionally each other! This fascinating and beautiful part of Monmouthshire was also a borderland in the religious strife of the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries.
The walk leaves Monmouth and follows the line of Offa’s Dyke Path across White Hill to Lower Hendre. We then follow the Trothy to the ancient church at Dingestow before turning uphill past a Norman castle to the famous Treowen and its numerous priests holes before returning to Monmouth via King’s Wood.
Terrain: Relatively easy, with some hills. It can be muddy in places after prolonged rain. Some road walking.
For your rucksack: A packed lunch, drinks and of course a camera.
Price: £5 per ticket.
