Kington and Hergest

Landscape & Geology Trail

This trail looks at the geology and landscape in the area of Kington. There is a short trail around Kington itself and a long trail which goes up onto Hergest Ridge. Fossils can be found in Silurian rocks which formed in tropical seas. There is also clear evidence of the effects of the Ice Age. There are magnificent views across Herefordshire and into Wales from Hergest Ridge, where the topography reflects the underlying rock structure.

The short trail takes approximately 1.5 hours and the long trail approximately 5 hours.
