The Ordnance Survey map 'Explorer OL14' is produced specifically for walkers, cyclists and horse riders and shows all the public rights of way in the area. From this map it is possible to explore many of the wonderful sights in the area including May Hill, Newent Woods, Dymock Forest, Castle Hill Wood, the village of Clifford's Mesne and large sections of the Leadon Vale. It is also possible to follow sections of the Herefordshire and Gloucestershire Canal and witness the work being carried out to reinstate it as a functional waterway within the next ten years.
