1950s 1960s Herefordshire Monmouthshire

104. Wye and Monmouth

Hello – Welcome to WDEOD, a site full of Doris’ photographs!

Its purpose is to share the shots she took in her 50+ years of travel. I’m trying to do a post a film – so one tour may have many posts.
To see what I’ve put up so far, use the menu (three lines up there ↑ if you are on a phone or tablet) to go to a place or a year.

Some photos of Doris’ trip to the Forest of Dean and then Monmouth. No details I’m afraid. The Saracen’s Head is still there, but the Wye Rapids Hotel is long gone.

When I looked for this on Google maps it took some time as the school (behind Dessie’s right shoulder) still stands, the houses to the other side have vanished.
