Brook and Bluebells
1.88km:  Allow 40 minutes for a slow, leisurely ramble.
One short incline through woodland
Distances and timings are approximate

Start at the village hall and continue down the lane into Farm Lane which becomes a rough track as it passes Cleaver's Cottage on the right and to the left you will hear the running water of the brook.

373 metres:  At the foot of the lane, turn left crossing the footbridge over the brook and bear left following the route of the brook with the open field to your right.

849 metres:  Soon the brook runs behind the fence then later emerges.  Cross the stream at this point and continue alongside the wire fence to the kissing gate in the corner of the field.  The brook now passes through a small tunnel beneath the road.

912 metres:  Go through the kissing gate and turn left onto the lane.  Follow the lane for 102 metres to a stile on the left opposite a further stile on the right (following this path crosses fields leading down to the stream).  

1.04km:  Cross the stile on the left into a small area of woodland noted for its bluebells in late spring.  Contiue a short distance to a gate at 1.06km.  Cross a former track, climb 3 steps and pass through the second gate (1.06km) then continue up the wooded incline to a stile (1.12km).

Take a breather at the top of the hill to enjoy the panoramic views of the rolling Herefordshire countryside from Llanwithy field then bear left and continue along the edge of the field with the hedge to your left and open views towards to your right.  

1.4km:  Cross the stile in the far left corner of the field and turn left onto Llangrove Road to return to the village hall, passing the Royal Arms on the right and Christ Church then Primary School on your left.  

1.88km:  Reach the village hall to complete the walk.
