Unfortunately, the casual visitor to Ross might miss the Prospect as it's not particularly well sign-posted. It's in a lovely spot at the top of Ross, with beautiful views of the surrounding area. Lots of seating available and a very peaceful place to relax in.

This is a great place to come and have a picnic in the summer months. The views are amazing and it's a great place for children to explore

A small stroll through the church graveyard and you reach the Prospect. A good place to see across the Wye and to look back and appreciate the church and its grounds.

This a small park with nice views of the River Wye below. There are a number of benches situated around the park. Locals were having lunch when we strolled through one afternoon.

It's a shame that from the Prospect Viewing point, which was our original destination for walking in the direction of St Mary's Church, there was no view of any merit because the trees around the river totally obscured it. I know it is Summer so...More

You can see a surprisingly long way for a climb you barely notice. You can also park your car right next to the church for access on the level.

I can only emphasise what the previous reviewer has said. Pleasant town, but please take a little time to see the prospect and the views down to the river. Cold and frosty during our visit but well worth the effort for the views and the...More

Ross-on-Wye is a very pleasant market town, but the most attractive thing to see in the town is the Prospect Gardens and historic St Mary’s church. Perched up on a hill in Church Street (strange that) the gardens are a lovely haven of greenery. The...More
