Description |


Ross Prospect is one of those special secret places that exist. Tucked behind the impressive St Mary's church and the hotel, it offers up a wonderful view of the river Wye which meanders its way past this south Herefordshire town.


Follow your feet and it will take you to this gated viewpoint where memorials lie and benches allow one to sit and ponder awhile. The war memorial takes a centre stages and the beacon which has been lit on high days and holidays stands proud on the edge.


Adjacent is the graveyard which has allowed the great, good and worthy to be buried here where sky meets land.


Rest awhile and take in the view. It's a good one.
