Destination: Offa’s Dyke (Chepstow to Brompton Crossroads)
Duration: 9 days Sat. 9th June – Sun. 17th
Group size: 12 max
Offa’s Dyke is a National Trail of 177 miles, which, to a large extent, follows the line of the boundary between England and Wales from Chepstow in the south to Prestatyn in the north. This trek intends to cover the southern half of the trail from Chepstow to Brompton Crossroads, a distance of 95 miles. This will be covered over a period of six walking days, averaging out at around 15 miles per day.
There will be two camps set up along the route. The first will be at Pandy and the second at Rockbridge. Each day transport will take you to the start point of your walk and meet you at the finish point to return you to camp. All days will be fully guided and you will only have to carry a day sack with you with only those items you will need for the day.
Accommodation will be in tents and you will have the option of having a single tent at no extra cost. All meals will be provided, a hearty cooked breakfast, a picnic lunch and a nutritious dinner at night. There will be plenty of wine and beer included. Campsites will be chosen according to the quality of their facilities, so that the experience will be as comfortable as possible.
This is a beautiful walk following the Wye Valley to Monmouth, across to the Black Mountains via a beautiful ridge walk, descending into Hay-on-Wye and its abundance of book shops, then across the wonderful Herefordshire hills to the market towns of Kington, Knighton and on to Brompton Crossroads.
If you wish to secure your place on this trip you will need to pay a £50 deposit. For logistical reasons we have to restrict the group size to twelve. Don’t miss out.
