Path below Cleddon Shoots above the Wye Valley near Llandogo
Path below Cleddon Shoots above the Wye Valley near Llandogo
An old path traverses this little valley here below the steepest or gorge-like section.

The paths here were, I believe, laid out in the 19th century to compete with or maybe complement the well known Piercefield Walks lower down the Wye Valley - a touring mecca at the time - and guides were appointed to show visiting gentry and tourists the routes and returns.

Today it's a bit more rough-and-ready or naturalistic. And mountain bikers are maybe the most common visitors.
