Great river for scenery Oct 29, 2010
I have a certain bias about British rivers and I love some of those in my birth county of Devon and in the Yorkshire Dales. However the Welsh river Wye, their second longest, has to be a favourite. Actually it goes through parts of England, Hereford perhaps being the most notable, but is source, its mouth and most of its course are in Wales.

Towns and villages on its course include Rhayader, Builth Wells, Hay-on-Wye, Hereford, Ross-on-Wye, Symonds Yat, Monmouth and Tintern. Of these, Hay is a town specialising in second hand books; Hereford is a county town, Symonds Yat is an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and Tintern has an abbey that can almost compete with Yorkshire's best.

Chepstow, where the river's mouth merges with that of the even longer Severn, has a castle and was an important battlefield in wars in the 11th to 14th centuries.
