Experience the Wye Valley Greenway

Tintern abbeyThe 7km Wye Valley Greenway path opened April 2021 and links Wyedean School, Sedbury & Chepstow to Tintern.

The Wye Valley Greenway path offers walkers and cyclists a sustainable way to visit the beautiful Lower Wye Valley, an area of outstanding natural beauty.

Starting at the National Diving & Activity Centre, the path winds its way along the disused Wye Valley Railway to the picturesque village of Tintern.

One of the highlights is the spectacular 1km Tidenham railway tunnel, easily accessible from the National Diving & Activity Centre.

Spearheaded by Greenways, the Wye Valley Greenway route has now been adopted by local volunteers. The team look after the route, ensuring it is used properly and closing the tunnel gates in the evening for the benefit of the bat population.

The path either side of the Tidenham tunnel is open for use 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.

The Tidenham tunnel is open in the daytime from the 1st April until 30th September.

At other times the tunnel will be closed to protect the bat population.
