Download GPS FileLlanthony Priory from Longtown
This energetic walk starts from Longtown in Herefordshire and crosses the Hatterrall ridge before descending to Llanthony Priory in the Vale of Ewyas. The return route re-crosses the ridge before returning to the start. Despite its relatively short length, this is an energetic walk involving considerable ascent with the climb out of the Vale Ewyas being steep and unrelenting. Some parts of the route need careful navigation and a 1:25k OS map is essential. As recompense the views from the higher ground are superb covering the Black Mountains to the west and most of Herefordshire to the east.
