Elsewhere on 'Wyenot', there is a page of views which were taken at and above Weston-under-Penyard. The page mentions a walk from Ross-on-Wye to Weston-under-Penyard via the forest path and past the firing range. The views below were taken from Tank Meadow, which is at the Ross-on-Wye end of this same forest path.

At the bottom of this page, I have included an old black and white image which was loaned to me by Glyn Williams. It was taken from a similar spot (a little further south) to the top picture and helped inspire my walk. I'm not sure of the date it was taken but it is probably circa 1965. It is now impossible to take the same view due to the height of the trees and looking at the area of the river, the trees along the bank now obscure the view of the water. What is most striking to me though is how much more green field area there was then. Today's view shows many more factories and housing estates.
