Eardisley figure of eight walk

More an ampersand walk, mainly on lanes, taking in views of Hay Bluff, the Black Mountains and passing by the Great Oak
Tags: Circular Eardisley Great Oak Herefordshire Map Slideshow Walk

This is an easy 3.5 mile walk, useful when ground is sodden or there is stock in the fields. Mainly on quiet lanes with one small orchard to cross. The orchard has a style on entrance and exit but if you find these difficult to navigate you can easily stick to the lanes. Hence a good walk for those with pushchairs or wheelchairs.

OS Map here.

The walk takes in many interesting properties, views of Hay Bluff, the Black Mountains and the Great Oak which is rumored to be the last standing tree from a forest mentioned in the Domesday Book. The Great Oak has a girth of just over 9 metres and is approximately 900 years old. The trunk is hollow and you can actually climb inside. However at time of writing it has just lost one of it's hefty branches causing a serious wound in the trunk. Below are photos and descriptions to help with the route but there is much more to see and discover than shown here.
