Start & finish point: Boat Inn Car Park, Redbrook (SO536098).
Distance: Approx 9 miles
Time to walk: Approx 5.5 hours
Description: Leaving the village of Redbrook we walk up part of Valley Brook and have a fairly short climb up to Coxbury Lane where there are far reaching views over the River Wye. We join up with another pretty valley, the Slade Brook which is an SSSI due to the presence of tufa dams in the brook. We stop here for lunch and then climb through Leyshill Wood and cross fields at the edge of Clearwell Quarry to pass through the hamlet of Stowe Green and onto Margery Lane and Rookery Lane, both quiet but metalled roads. We then go downhill on a rough track and into the village of Newland and visit All Saints Church which dates back to the early 1200s. We return downhill on a fairly steep narrow path through Forge Woods and return to Redbrook.
Terrain: Some steep stony tracks, rutted lanes, one very steep woodland track, some stiles.
For your rucksack: A packed lunch, drinks and a camera.
Price: £5 per ticket
