Symonds Yat, England

This evening, I am reporting on the magnificent vista at Symonds Yat which is located on the English side of the Anglo-Welsh border. Here is a beautiful green landscape through which winds the River Wye, Britain's fourth longest river which ultimately feeds into the River Severn,the longest river in Britain.  

The name Symonds Yat has two separate sources: Symonds is the name of a 17th century sheriff of Herefordshire whilst the 'yat' element derives from the old Scandinavian word for gate.

The site is located about 25 miles west of the city of Gloucester.

A nice spot for quite reflection!
