At the heart of Gilpin 2020+ is the project with the same name by the Wye Valley Learning Network of primary schools.
Children from a group of schools have engaged in a creative project that brings the original Wye Tour to life.
We’ve used drone footage, specially commissioned and captured by Dronemaster Productions to take you on a virtual tour of the Wye from Ross to Monmouth (day one of Gilpin’s Tour).
The finished films are on the pages in The Tour group of this website, and all in one place below.
The children’s work is on display in St Mary’s Church until Wednesday 17th November 2021. Here’s a video preview:
We’ve worked with local artists and communities on related creative media with a tangible and lasting physical piece of art at key locations along the tour.
The Wye Valley Learning Network is:
Brampton Abbotts CE Primary School
Bridstow CE Primary School
Goodrich CE Primary School
Gorsley Goffs Primary School
Lea CE Primary School
Ledbury Primary School
Weston-under-Penyard CE Primary School

This project has been funded by Herefordshire’s a Great Place Hidden Gems grants for 2020. Without their support this project would not have been possible. You can find out more about the other 4 successful applications from 2020 here.
