Day 01 : 32km : Chepstow to Monmouth

Well no easy start to this walk. The countryside isn't very challenging but it's still 32km in one day. Plenty to get the journey under way I think. I have some tired legs! So it was a pretty walk. Miles and miles in pretty woods strewn with the remains of this year's blue bells and paths lined with borders of wild garlic. The plunging chasm to the left down to the Wye in its gorge was a fairly constant companion. It truly is deep and precipitous. The path was mostly well signed and the weather was mostly kind. The views over Monmouth from the Round House on top of Kymin Hill were fantastic. Some much more serious hills in the middle distance and best of all, I think I'm going there tomorrow.
