Overlooking the Wye Leaflets

Client > Wye Valley AONB

We worked closely with the Overlooking the Wye and Wye Valley AONB teams over two years on this project which involved 40 sites. The aim of the scheme was to improve and promote enjoyment and understanding of the historic environment in the landscape of the lower Wye Valley.

This part of the project was to design a set of trail leaflets each detailing a different walk promoting the fascinating and varied history and heritage in the Wye Valley AONB.
