OFFA'S DYKE - CENTRAL SECTION

From Chirk to Kington

 

The Path

The Offa’s Dyke path runs for 177 miles from Prestatyn on the North Wales coast to Chepstow on the Severn Estuary. The route follows the ancient barrier which was built by Offa, the King of Mercia, in the 8th century to protect his kingdom from his rivals in what is now Wales. 

We walk each section from north to south over six days, returning each night to our comfortable hotel.

The dyke transverses hugely diverse scenery along its route. To some the southern section through the Black Mountains past the ruins of Tintern Abbey and Llanthony Priory will be the highlight. Others might prefer the Clwydian Hills and the relatively modern aqueducts on the Llangollen canal. However, some who walk the mid section through the Welsh Marches may consider that more rolling countryside and appealing market towns offer a very different but equally appealing experience. We suggest you try all three sections before deciding on your favourite. If you walk all three routes the total walking distance is about 186 miles, which is slightly longer than the official path. This is due to short walks to and from the trail.

The Central Section

The most challenging section of the entire Offa’s Dyke route. We’ll walk approximately 66 miles of the central section south from Chirk to the traditional English town of Kington. We will walk the cliffs of Llanymynech Hills, ascend Beacon Ring and walk on the highest point of the trail before reaching our destination at Kington.




WALKING GRADES


Full day walks with appreciable amounts of ascent and descent. These walks are in more remote areas such as the Alps or northern Portugal. Similar to Grade 5, but with most of the walks at the upper level of ascent/descent, time and distance.
