Walks in Chepstow - A lovely informative site. Chepstow is now an official Walkers are Welcome town and granted the status in Mid April of 2012. Nine volunteers got together who all share a passion about walking to achieve this award for Chepstow. Why is it fast becoming a walkers haven? Firstly the start of the Wales Coast Path begins in Chepstow and Offa's Dyke begins just on the outskirts of the town. We also boast the start of two further long distance walks, The Wye Valley Walk and Gloucestershire Way. Chepstow lies at the foot of the Lower Wye Valley an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and have excellent transport links. Walkers are Welcome to coin a phrase does exactly what it says on the tin. Here at Chepstow we are providing lockers for walkers to leave their gear whilst walking around the town, Monmouthshire County Council are providing grants to accommodation providers to provide extra facilities for walkers e.g drying rooms and we have many more plans up our sleeves. We are a true border county as the frontier, so to speak, between Wales and England is in the centre of the Old Wye Bridge of the town. A 'not for profit' organisation we welcome any useful suggestions via our website that you think would enhance your walking experience.
