Exploring Angidy’s Industrial Past

For 300 years, the numerous works and forges along the Angidy Valley dominated the village and surrounding communities. The Forest of Dean and Wye Valley Tour Guides will lead a walk , in conjunction with the Wye Valley Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB), to examine the hidden industrial past of this fascinating area.

The 4.5 mile (7.1km) walk on Sunday October 21, will look at the industrial past and will visit the ancient iron works, which were a part of recent conservation works carried out by the Overlooking the Wye scheme.

This short but demanding walk requires a standard of fitness as there are stretches of uphill walking. However you will be rewarded with wonderful views of Tintern from the ruined Church of St Mary. The walk is free but booking is essential as these walks are very popular. Please note this walk is unsuitable for dogs.

To book  your place please contact Sarah Sawyer, Wye Valley AONB Community Links Officer  tel: 01600 710844 or email community@wyevalleyaonb.org.uk.
