Well worth a walk

A bit of a trek down to the old church by the river, but worth the effort. Good views along the Wye.

Lancaut has three attractions - the nature reserve, challenging walks, and a ruined chapel on the banks of the River Wye. Car parking is free, but you will need good walking boots and plenty of nerve if conditions are wet, cold or wintry and you...More

Lovely place to walk and enjoy some nice scenery. Would advise to go on a nice day as it makes everything look brighter. Its steep in certain areas. Nice to take a picnic or flask of tea to enjoy half way!

A good walk down to the old church but hard going coming back! A neutral trading place between the English and Welsh,a one time leaper colony and now an inspiring afternoons walk. If you walk along the riverbank it can be very muddy after spring...More

Took around 3.5 hours to walk this. Great scenes. Just a few more pubs along the way would be great!

Went climbing on the rocks. Great fun but very exposed and not very well protected. Got lost on the North Wall Expedition (vague directions) and had to abseil off.

A quiet part of the river with a ruined church, with the tide in this is the definition of picturesque. A bit of a climb down from the parking area, but worth it. Car park can sometimes be full of climbers.

Get up close to the River Wye in the valley or look down on it from above. See the mud slopes at low tide, try and comprehend the quantity of water that would fill the valley at high tide! The nature reserve has a sign-posted...More
