Easy and Accessible Walking and wheeling in Herefordshire

Accessible Herefordshire are always on the look out for new routes and pathways for walks. We have recorded a few on Go Pro for walkers and wheelers and those who would like to access the Herefordshire countryside on line. We are also investigating new routes around Orleton and the wonderful Boot Inn pub hub.


We love to hear and share any routes that showcase our wonderful countryside. Please let us know if you can recommend any or would like to film them for us to share. Please get in touch email accessibleherefordshire@gmail.com

Gardens and walks - places of interest to explore

gardens, maze and lovely tea rooms 


A Museum Without Walls?  Ross on Wye are using augmented reality (AR) to

bring back lost aspects of Ross town’s past. AR allows us to construct digital,

animated, three-dimensional representations of buildings and other objects

that have been lost to time. Using a smartphone or tablet you can walk

around the town and see some of it as it once


Ross On Wye has a linear arboretum with footpaths and trails

During 2019 and 2020, Ross-on-Wye Town Council planted 163

sponsored trees in a Linear Arboretum along the riverside. Trees

were carefully planned and selected for their biodiversity,

including many rare species, to attract visitors, contribute to its

conservation agenda and add natural beauty to the riverside. You

will find many species from around the world as well as favourite

native trees, all labelled on their supporting wooden posts.

Take a stroll from Wilton Bridge along the riverside where the Linear

Arboretum stretches along the Long Acre meadow and around Caroline Symonds Gardens next to The Bandstand. Continue

following the route towards the canoe launch in front of the Hope &

Anchor car park and then follow the loop around the Rope Walk
