D6: Yew trees and mistletoe galore

This page contains a summary and map of the walk. Full route details and description will be added as soon as I’ve got time!

This is a short circular walk, beginning in ancient woods around an iron age fort and an easy return along the banks of the Wye.


  • Grade: Easy-moderate – there’s an initial steep but short climb, but after that most of the route is straightfoward – apart from a stretch of muddy track.
  • Length: 4.5 miles
  • Key Features: Capler camp – iron age hill fort; St Mary’s church at Fownhope with a lovely 15th century oak shingle spire; In the first part of the walk, round the iron age fort area there are many yew trees. In the second part of the walk, particulary when there are no leaves on the trees, you’ll see an abundance of mistletoe.
  • Refreshments: The Green Man and the New Inn in Fownhope
