Wysis Way

The Wysis Way runs for 88 km through the lovely, but very distinctive areas of the Forest of Dean, Severn Vale and Cotswold. Connecting two great National Trails, Offa's Dyke Path and the Thames Path, it provides a link which provides continuous walking for 400 miles from the North Wales coast to Greenwich.

The Wysis Way starts at Monmouth, where Offa's Dyke crosses the River Wye and heads east across a tract of the Forest of Dean and the Leaden Vale to Gloucester, which fully validates the old line 'blessed is the eye between the Severn and the Wye'. After crossing the River Severn the route heads south east over Robinswood Hill and climbs the Cotswold escarpment to Painswick Beacon. It continues onwards through the glorious Cotswold countryside visiting Bisley, Sapperton and finally meets the Thames, or Isis, near Kemble.

The guidebook describes the route in six sections as follows:
Monmouth to Old Speculation - 10.75 miles
Old Speculation to Glasshouse - 10 miles
Glasshouse to Gloucester - 10 miles
Gloucester to Bulls Cross - 10 miles
Bulls Cross to Sapperton - 8.5 miles
Sapperton to Kemble (the Isis) - 6 miles
