The village of Fawley, Herefordshire is about a seven mile scenic walk, cycle ride or, although it grieves me to mention it, drive from Ross-on-Wye. The route follows a pretty lane which mostly runs parallel to the River Wye. If cycling or driving, start out at Brampton Street and keep going, past Brampton Abbotts until you reach the footbridge at Foy; or if walking it is even nicer to take the Wye Valley Walk as far as Foy, via Backney. The footbridge is a lovely place from which to admire the view before continuing to Hole-in-the-Wall, following the lane and keeping the river to your left. At the How Caple junction, turn left and continue towards Fawley.

The photographs below were taken early morning on Sunday 28th July 2002 as a way of trying to forget the pain my wisdom teeth were causing. With ibuprofen levels topped up to the maximum dosage and cycling from my home in Ross at around 5:30 am, I was back again before the rest of the household had awoken, still worrying about the looming visit to the dental hospital but with twenty eight nice photographs to show for it. If you would like to see some photographs of the night sky taken at Foy, please click here.
