Black and White Village Trail


69 km / 43 miles
Originally conceived by David Gorvett as a route for car drivers, the Trail provides a similar route for walkers through the villages between Leominster and Kington, an area characterised by the large number of timbered and half-timbered buildings. The landscape is generally undulating farmland, and provides good views of the surrounding hill ranges.

The pdf file describes the car route.
