    This stage takes you high into the hills along the English and Welsh border and affords stunning views into both countries.

    From Hay, you pick up the River Wye once again for a short section before a long but gradual climb through peaceful farmland, woodland, and sleepy villages.

    As you pass through Gladestry, it is worth visiting St Mary's, a pretty church that dates to the 13th century and retains many original features.

    After leaving the village, you begin a spectacular section over Hergest Ridge. Reaching a height of 1,398 feet (426 meters), the ridge boasts a breathtaking panorama.

    You descend from the ridge to finish in Kington, which has a good range of accommodation, places to eat and drink, as well as shops and other attractions.
