    This stage explores the serene rural landscape of Monmouthshire.

    After parting ways with the River Wye, the trail takes you through a pretty patchwork of farmland, woodland, orchards, and sleepy villages.

    Before you emerge from Monmouth, you cross over Monnow Bridge, the only surviving mediaeval fortified river bridge in Britain where the gate tower is on the bridge.

    You do not see any of Offa’s Dyke on this stage but you do pass some fascinating historical places.

    The trail takes you right past White Castle, the best preserved of the Monmouthshire fortresses known as the ‘Three Castles’.

    As you enter Llangattock Lingoed you pass St Cadoc's, a Grade I-listed medieval church that has a large wall painting inside from the early 15th century.

    This stage finishes in the village of Pandy, which has some options for accommodation and food and drink.
