Llandogo History

Two hundred years ago the River Wye was the main trade route from Hereford to Chepstow and Bristol. It was a busy watery highway along which the flatbottomed river trows carried goods from the riverside villages of the Wye. In an age before road and rail river connections were vital. The Wye is still a tidal river at Llandogo allowing large flat-bottomed boats (called trows) to navigate this far inland. It was the highest port on the Wye that the
big boats could reach. For centuries these trows were the life blood of Llandogo regularly making the trip to Bristol and further afield.
