The Wye Valley

The River Wye – quite possibly the cleanest and most picturesque river in England.

Biblin Bridge – built by the Forestry Commission.

I’ve never been convinced that rope bridges are a good idea. Even less so when they cross wide, fast-flowing rivers and happen to bounce as you walk over them.

Discovered this cheeky chappy at the base of the bridge. Painted on the back a Facebook reference to fod rocks.

Further up stream the village of Symonds Yat.

Symonds Yat West.

And looking upstream through the gorge with the well-known Peregrine site to the right, high on the limestone cliffs.

Really fortunate to enjoy a superb close-up view of the female Peregrine flying over the viewpoint. Also a Goshawk, Buzzards and a pair of Ravens. Strange to think that a similar view has been enjoyed for the past 12,000 years with Archaeologists recently discovering early hand tools, bones from hyenas, sabre-toothed cats and a mammoth from the nearby hill-fort.
