Herefordshire and The Wye Valley Short Walks, Neil Coates - This new revised and updated edition of Herefordshire & the Wye Valley Short Walks from Pathfinder is even better than ever. The walks explore many of the county's facets. Herefordshire is renowned for its hop-yards and cider-apple orchards, threaded by peaceful footpaths, lanes and byroads amidst rich pastures and wooded limestone ridges grazed by the famous terracotta-coloured cattle. But the county also has a wild side; the huge sandstone wall of the Black Mountains rises in the west, the Forest of Dean and the remarkable Wye Gorge fringe the south and the Malvern Hills offer a dramatic eastern boundary. With walks in and around villages, modest strolls to farmyard chapels, Wye-side meadows and windswept hilltops and longer walks into the more remote corners of this undiscovered county. Crimson Short Walks are the ideal companion to short walks for all ages. Perfect for families, weekend breaks or anyone looking for a short walk option, this series of over 30 guides contain the best 20 circular short walks in each area. Published February 09.

Pathfinder: Wye Valley and Forest of Dean, Dennis Kelsall - The Wye Valley and the Forest of Dean are linked both by geography the forest forming the eastern rim of the valley for much of the Wye's lower reaches and by history, since they share a common heritage as a border between England and Wales.

This guide focuses on the middle and lower sections of the Wye Valley, roughly where the river leaves its upper reaches in mid-Wales to enter Herefordshire. Hay-on-Wye, Hereford and the walled town of Chepstow are also covered, as is the classic view over the winding Wye Valley from Symonds Yat. Published June 11.
