Meandering through the Forest of Dean, this is a lovely stretch with lots of attractions to visit and lush scenery to take in.
Welsh Bicknor is located in the heart of the Forest of Dean. Despite it’s name, Welsh Bicknor is actually not in Wales, but in Herefordshire.It’s name refers back to when it was a detached parish of Monmouthshire. Much of the parish’s history is involved with the large manor house. You can also find a Youth Hostel here.
The name of this location is subject to some disagreement. It is believed however that Huntsham is correct, meaning low flat ground of the hunt.
This bridge is around a mile away from Symonds Yat. The locale was mentioned by Anthony Hopkins in the film Shadowlands. While playing CS Lewis he describes the view of the River Wye as "a view of heaven" from Symonds Yat rock.Symonds Yat is home to a maze and butterfly zoo!
