Summary: The Arrow Valley Trail is a walk following the River Arrow from its source in the uplands of Powys in the Welsh Border hills, descending through Herefordshire hill country via Newchurch to Kington and on to Leominster. The route was designed and researched by Ramblers members and led by Greta Pennington, Chairman of Herefordshire Area and Mortimer Group of the Ramblers, and an active footpath officer and campaigner. From where the river first emerges from the ground on Gwuanceste Hill in Powys the walk goes in a west to east direction via Newchurch, Milton, Purnt Bridge, Red Hill Wood, Park Stile Mill, Bredward (Hergest Court), Kington, Offa's Dyke, Cabal, Staunton on Arrow, Pembridge, Eardisland, Burton Court, Monkland, and Broadward Hall to the finish of the trail at Eaton Bridge, Leominster.
