Offa's Dyke Path National Trail Guide

Offa's Dyke Path National Trail Guide

by: Ernie and Kathy Kay and Mark Richards. Edited by Tony Gowers
This guide covers the 177 miles (285km) of the Offa's Dyke Path (Llwybr Clawdd Offa), which, as it follows the undulating borderlands of England and Wales, passes through a stunning and ever-changing landscape.
Starting at Sedbury Cliffs on the Severn estuary, the guide follows the Path up the wooded slopes of the Wye Valley, past the ruins of Tintern Abbey and along the splendid ridge of the Black Mountains to Hay-on-Wye, famed for its numerous bookshops. Beyond the hills on the Shropshire-Powys border lie the lowlands of the Upper Severn Valley, giving way to more dramatic scenery as the route approaches Llangollen and the World Heritage Site of the Pontcysyllte Aqueduct. The final stretches of the Path take in the rugged beauty of the Clwydian range with its fascinating hill forts, before making a last plunge to the Irish Sea coast at Prestatyn.
This official guide is the only companion you need as it includes clear directions and Ordnance Survey 1:25,000 scale Explorer mapping of the entire route. The text also includes an introduction to the history of Offa's Dyke and background information on everything from archaeology to wildlife. There is also comprehensive up-to-date information on public transport, accommodation and places of interest to assist with planning and the book is lavishly illustrated with colour photography throughout. The detailed route finding instructions are split into 12 day walk chapters.
