The old Ross and Monmouth Railway line
The old Ross and Monmouth Railway line
View west towards Symonds Yat along the old trackbed of the Ross and Monmouth Railway. Opened in 1873 and closed in 1959.

The trackbed here now forms part of the Wye Valley Walk which runs from Chepstow to Plynlimon via Monmouth, Hereford, Builth Wells and Rhayader.

The house on the left is a holiday cottage having been recently converted. In its past incarnation as a barn it was used for filming in the film Shadowlands (1993) starring Anthony Hopkins and Debra Winger.
