Although hugely successful Lofty Wiseman below is very down to earth. He is renowned for his long service in the SAS, his survival Knowledge and his SAS Survival Handbook series, which are best sellers the world over. This is what Lofty had to say about the project when fellow founder Wye Explorer Paul was alive to contribute.


It’s very rewarding to see the River Wye receiving some recognition for all the joy and beauty it brings. I think that ww.wyeexplorer.co.uk have done a grand job of doing just this. The Wye is the main artery in Herefordshire and Mid Wales, creating a magnificent landscape wherever it meanders. The abundant wild life it supports is so diverse from plants, birds, fish and many other creatures making it appealing to everyone. Seeped in history it records the past and with this publicity can help to shape the future. Keep up the good work boys, you are doing a brilliant job.

  5. I am sad about the news, I am so very sorry for Mark and his family. I've been following the Wye project for a long time and am enjoying these explorations. You can not be anywhere, so it's so great to be able to get to know about Youtube. Mark, your brother will be so proud of you when you continue the project. It does not matter how much time it will take. He looks at you and is happy. This project now receives a very different, very deep meaning, bringing it to an end with your heart blood.
    I wish you and a family a lot of strength for the next time. You carry Paul in your heart out into the Wye and speak to him in your thoughts, and you show him the wonderful landscapes, that he could not see anymore ...
    All the best wishes for you and your family, joy and family, from the heart Angela

  7. I am so sorry to hear the sad news regarding your brother Paul. He was a big inspiration in front and behind the camera. I know it will be difficult to carry on with your journey along the Wye, but do it in your own time and at your own pace. Keep positive. I hope our paths cross soon. Take care. Steve.

  8. I've never been to the Wye, but Paul and Mark have brought it to me through Youtube and for that I am grateful. They have brought to life with their enthusiasm an area of the UK I am now destined to visit and know will enjoy.
    I am deeply saddened and offer my condolences to Mark at this time, and wish him all the best in the future.

  9. A wonderful site . We have spent many an hour enjoying the sights and sounds of the Wye on here . Mark and Paul are truly inspirational . How lucky to share all this with your brother . Peace . Austin and Lucy.

  10. This is a site which, if fully explored, will stretch the mind, imagination and stamina to the limit.
    It will encourage deep thought, and a desire for self awareness combined with a determination to follow your own path and go 'always a little further' and in going that little further you will come to understand that by risking going to far you will come to know just how far you can really go.
    This is not a trip to be taken lightly as I am sure both Mark and Paul have come to realise, but they are undertaking that journey and will ultimately find out just how far they too can go.
    I wish them both all the strength they need and will need and don't yet know they have.

  11. The Wye Explorer project is an inspirational window through which anyone can see how hope and divine will can triumph and overcome adversity. This wonderful project created and driven by Mark and Paul is proof positive that nature is an antidote to the so called modern world. We all have access to it and have it within us to be the best versions of ourselves that we can possibly be. Every doumented step that Mark and Paul have taken on this journey along the breathtaking River Wye and its surrounds is a positive affirmation of this. Thank you both for sharing this remarkable journey with us all. See you on the banks. Paul :)

  12. Great site, worth every minute spent looking through the really useful information, a must for walkers from all over. Do you want outdoor theatre, a short walk taking in a unusual feature or maybe music as you walk, this site has got it all. A spiritual and intellectual guide through the Wye Valley acompanied by the music of the land, these guys have captured it all. Brilliant.

  14. Nice work chaps, your pictures and stories are full of love and passion. A great diary of fun and exploration!

  15. Great website, expresses the adventure of setting off into the wildness with just the stuff to survive carried in a sack on your back. How quickly we revert to basics, surviving, looking at nature, the wet, the pleasure of the sun drying you out, sleeping, waiting till light, and the pleasure of walking. It is tough walking on the tufty grass, negotiating peat bogs, meeting unnegotiable sheer cliffs and impenetrable forestry, most of all - getting lost! Even with a compass. The website understands all this and much more too.

  21. Was encouraged by Mark to check this site out during a phone call he made to Wex Photographic. Just wanted to say I love what you are doing here and also how passionate you are about exploring the River Wye. Keep on promoting yourself as I am sure you have already encouraged many to visit and explore this area.
