Description |

Erstwhile walkers may know the iconic walking trail known as Offa's Dyke Path of old. It follows some 177 miles north and south following the ancient earthwork built by Offa in the English/Welsh Marches.

Starting or finishing in Prestatyn or Sedbury, the countryside that it covers is some of the most picturesque and silently beautiful including this stretch in the Wye Valley as well as the Black Mountains, the Cambrian Mountains and stretches of canal.

Timeless, at some points breath-taking for the wrong reasons, this section runs from Sedbury next to the River Severn north to Bigsweir Bridge, up the Wye Valley. Past Wintour's Leap distant of Sedbury Cliffs and the River Severn, past Tidenham Chase and the Devil's Pulpit heading for Bigsweir Bridge and beyond.
