About the event
A fantastic chance to try a route that is linear this time following one of the most famous British long distance paths we have, the Offas Dyke route.
Offa’s Dyke Path is a 177 mile (285 Km) long walking trail. It is named after the spectacular Dyke King Offa ordered to be constructed in the 8th century, probably to divide his Kingdom of Mercia from rival kingdoms in what is now Wales. We are only walking 15 miles of it, but even so, it's worth doing, as on a good day this section between Kington & Hay-on-Wye gives far-reaching views from it's high ridges, and a chance to walk through a few beautifully isolated villages down in the valleys below.
There is nothing like a linear walk, a chance to experience the feeling of walking back to Hay along such an ancient route hopefully will be something to remember & a real achievement.
The price of the walk includes a taxi transfer from Hay-on-Wye at the start of the day to KIngton village where we will start to walk.
This walk is hilly, using lanes, farmland & healthland. There are no mountains though, so definatley doable!
(If you are unsure if you are capable of doing this walk, please do make contact with Sarah, especially if you have walked with us before, and she will be able to advise you).
