Starting from the impressive ruins of Llanthony Priory we will walk up the Vale of Ewyas to the diminutive but no less impressive St Mary’s Chapel at Capel y Ffin. Continuing up the valley we will join the high ground and enjoy extensive views over the Wye Valley before summiting Twmpa. The walk continues to Hay Bluff before a stroll along Offa’s Dyke Path back to the start point. During the walk we will pass the sites of some aircraft crashes and will take time to hear the history of these events.
