The Ross Round

There are several versions of this long circular route around Ross-on Wye that was originally developed by Guy Vowles in 2004.
This is the longer version of some 25 miles. We’ve broken it down into 8 separate manageable circular routes that together cover
the whole Round. Each route is between 6 and 8 miles long. All maps are OS © Crown copyright 2020 CS-144256-V6D9W9.
