Day One of the Usk Valley walk from Caerleon to Usk. We’ll take the bus from Usk to the start at Caerleon. From the bridge, we walk through the old village of Caerleon ascending past the Celtic Manor golf course. We then ascend to a forest and follow a track high above the river and the A449, dropping down past Bertholey manor house. We climb again up Cefn Hill then down to the quiet village of Llantrisant. We walk beside the river for the final three miles to the town of Usk.
