The First Village Walk

WyeValleyWalk20160606_122021Twenty-eight people (and several dogs) joined the Footpaths Project team in the first social Village Walk on 30th April, taking a five mile walk through the woods to Cleddon Falls and Beacon Hill, or a shorter two and a half mile walk around Trellech Common.  Both routes are now available to view and download on the Footpaths Project page.  Photos taken on the walk have been posted on our Facebook page.
