Spaces available on the coach
Ross on Wye (Herefordshire), Sunday 21st October 2018

The next Leicester Ramblers Coach Trip will be to Ross on Wye in Herefordshire. Ross-on-Wye is a small market town with a population of 10,700, in south eastern Herefordshire, England, located on the River Wye, and on the northern edge of the Forest of Dean (Src: Wikipedia).
There’s no mistaking Ross-on-Wye in south Herefordshire as a market town. St Mary’s Church spire has shaped the skyline of Ross-on-Wye for over 700 years.
Perched dramatically above the River Wye, Ross is the southern gateway to Herefordshire, the Wye Valley and Forest of Dean and the dramatic Symonds Yat. Hailed as the birthplace of modern tourism, Ross-on-Wye was central to the 18th Century Reverend Gilpin spotting a great opportunity and then establishing ‘The Picturesque Wye Tour’, it’s no surprise that Ross on Wye has long been a magnet for visitors (Src Visit Herefordshire).

The coach departs at 8.00 am from outside the Premier Inn on Narborough Road, Leicester. Free parking is available courtesy of the Premier Inn. The coach fare is £14 per person. Passengers can also be picked up from Leicester City centre. An optional pub meal is available before the coach returns home, at additional cost.
There will be a choice of 3/4 walks varying in distance and difficulty.

Booking is essential. To get more details or book a place please contact the Coach Secretary, John Rhodes, on 0116 2402077 or by email at johnrhodes15@btinternet.com
