The Offas Dyke Path, a 177 mile National Trail, runs along the England / Wales border between Chepstow and Prestatyn. The main route is described in this guide in 15 stages, as are alternative routes which visit places of interest or detour to accommodation, as well as planning information to create flexible itineraries. The route - fully accompanied with OS maps - offers an attractive, and at times demanding, prospect for long-distance walkers as it wanders along the Wye Valley, the Black Mountains, Shropshire Hills and the Clwydian Range. Useful information on parking, maps required, distances, travel and accommodation is all included. Offa's Dyke was constructed by the powerful King of Mercia in the late eighth century to mark out the western boundary of his kingdom. The Offa's Dyke Path follows this centuries-old boundary and encounters, quiet walking, bustling towns (including Oswestry and Hay-on-Wye), gentle countryside, castles and ancient remains along its route, as the Path makes its way through varied, sometimes wild, often remote, and frequently superb scenery.
This guidebook - which includes both a guide to the route and a separate OS map booklet - describes Offa's Dyke Path National Trail from south to north, following the longest linear earthwork in Britain, running 177 miles along the English-Welsh border between Sedbury (near Chepstow) and Prestatyn on the north Wales Coast. The book splits one of Britain's classic trails into 12 stages suitable for walkers of all abilities. Step-by-step route descriptions are accompanied by 1:100,000 OS map extracts. Also included with this guidebook is a booklet of 1:25,000 OS maps, which provides all the mapping needed to complete the trail in a compact form. A trek planner gives at a glance information about facilities, public transport and accommodation available along the route. The walk is astonishingly varied, taking in the lower Wye gorge, the Severn and the Dee rift valley, the pastures and woodlands of the border country, the remote moorland of the Black Mountains and the Clwydian range, and the dramatic limestone escarpments of Eglwyseg mountain. What makes it even more special is over 60 miles walking alongside the Saxon earthwork of Offa's Dyke.
