Portrait of the Wye Valley
Portrait of the Wye Valley
  • Description

The River Wye is one of Britain’s most scenic rivers. From its source, in the wild uplands of Plynlimon, to its mouth at Chepstow, the river and its environs lock into photogenic landscapes. These landscapes are rich sources of wildlife and plant species and the river supports Atlantic Salmon. The lower 52 miles (83km) are designated an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

A long distance walk, ‘TheWyeValley Walk’ covers the entire length of the river (136m/218km) but does not always hug it. There are numerous forays into surrounding hills, both in Wales and inside England, and indeed these are featured in this book. In fact the only flat lands of any note around the Wye are from Hereford down to Ross on Wye.

A plethora of ancient and historical settlements, castles and churches, blend in with open and wooded landscapes. They all unite to provide a feast for the eyes, recorded in sweeping images by the discerning photography of the renowned Van Greaves.

Van Greaves is a photographer based in the Midlands. His work appears in numerous mediums including calendars, cards, brochures, but principally in books. This is his sixth book for Halsgrove, following the success of Portrait of Birmingham, Moods of Shropshire and the Marches, Moods ofWorcestershire and Elgar Country, Moods of Warwickshire and Shakespeare Country and Moods of Staffordshire.
