Guided Bus and Train walks in Mortimer Country
Date Posted: 3rd April 2013
Borders between countries have an aura of intrigue, myth and mystery, and the one dividing England and Wales is no exception, making it just a little different as a place to go walking. So if you have itchy feet, then walk this way - through the lush, undulating landscape either side of King Offa’s 8th century earthwork border -
The walks are provided by East Radnor Ramblers, Fourwells Ramblers, Herefordshire Ramblers, Ludlow 21, Rail Rambles and Walk Herefordshire. The walks are open to everyone; visitors to the area are very welcome. Walk Herefordshire, based in Leominster, specialises in providing guided walks and holidays.
Most of the walks are linear and use a bus or train to travel to the start point and in some cases for a return journey. You’ll need to pay the bus or train fare or use a valid concessionary pass for bus travel. Bring food and drink for the day and suitable clothing-stout footwear and warm, waterproof clothes. The grade of walk and distance is given and includes the following:
Easy: walks for anyone who does not have a mobility difficulty, specific health problem or is seriously unfit. Mostly level, possibly some gradients. Easy pace. Moderate: walks for those with a good level of fitness as they may include some steep paths and open countryside. Pace is often faster to cover mileage. Strenuous: Walks for experienced country walkers which may include several hills and rough country. Pace is faster to cover mileage.
