Destination: Offa’s Dyke (Brompton Crossroads – Prestatyn)
Duration: 9 days – Sat. 1st – Sun. 9th September 2018
Group size: 12 max.
This second section of Offa’s Dyke continues where we left off starting at Brompton Crossroads and concluding on the North Wales coast at Prestatyn. Slightly shorter than the first half, this section is a total of 82 miles, averaging 13.5 miles a day.
The path continues to follow the border over the Shropshire/Welsh hills. North of Oswestry the route takes us deeper into Wales, to Llangollen and the Llangollen canal bridge. The last range of hills, perhaps by this stage in the walk, “the sting in the tail”, is the Clwydian Range, before the final descent into Prestatyn.
As before there will be two camps set up along the route, near Welshpool and Wrexham. 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.
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.
