We are working to build-up a picture of what routes look like. To do that we are asking volunteers to survey routes so that we can communicate features, obstacles and challenges that may make a route desirable or not.

Slow Ways surveyors are asked to complete some basic online training, but they are not vetted. If you are dependent on the survey information being correct in order to complete a route, we recommend that you think critically about the information provided. You may also wish to wait until more than one survey has been completed.

Help people know more about this route by volunteering to submit a survey.

June 2022. Direction: Abergavenny to Raglan.

This walk follows the Usk Valley Walk for several miles and then follows lanes and fields on the way into Raglan. Just one access problem around the area of Rhiw-las Mill (2 km from Raglan), but there is an easy walk around on the lanes.

After leaving Abergavenny behind, the path joins the Mon & Brec canal at Llanfoist for a couple of miles with great views across the lUsk Valley, before descending to the village of Llanellen. Take care crossing the bridge, as there is no footpath and the road can be very busy. After leaving the road, there is a superb stretch through the fields by the River Usk (Photos 1 and 2). The path deviates from the Usk Valley Walk just before The Bryn, which is a good excuse to visit the 2000-year old yew tree in the churchyard at Llangattock-nigh-Usk (Photo 3). At Pant-y-Goitre Bridge (Photo 4) there is a stretch along the road and lanes for a mile or so, before re-joining the River Usk. The path then permanently leaves the Usk Valley Walk and passes through the National Trust`s Clytha estate and the Folly (Photo 5). Close by is the Clytha Arms pub, which is a welcome place for a breather (Photo 6).

The path then continues up through the fields and lanes of Clytha Hill. It was all going well until I encountered some access issues at Rhiw-las Mill. The signage is not very good and the path as far as I could tell did not lead anywhere or was blocked / overgrown. I ended up going back and following the lane around Rhiw-las farm. With this small tweak to the route, this is definitely a 5-star walk.
