May is National Walking Month, and the Lower Wye Ramblers invite you to join them on Sunday 12 May for a 6.8-mile leisurely walk starting at 10 am from Coed Fedw Wood car park on the B4293 (Grid reference: ST 50560 98443; Nearest postcode: NP16 6H; what3words: squish.darling.centrally). From the car park, the route goes through bluebell-carpeted woods and farmland pastures and passes by one of the many natural ponds in the area.

Please bring a drink, snack, and packed lunch with you and wear suitable clothing and footwear for the walk. For further information (directions to start point) and contact details for the walk leader, go the group’s website (; it is always advisable to look on the website on the morning of a walk to check for any last-minute changes [e.g. cancellation due to weather, etc.]).

Walking is a great way to stay fit, enjoy the beautiful area we live in, and meet new people and make friends, and the Lower Wye Ramblers group offers a warm welcome to both novice and experienced walkers. So come along and join us—we look forward to meeting you.

During National Walking Month Living Streets are challenging you to walk for 20 minutes every day and have put together 20 tips to help you fit 20 minutes of walking into your day.
