Offa's Dyke Path
This official guidebook to Offa’s Dyke Path National Trail, published in 2021, covers the 177 mile Offa's Dyke Path through the stunning and ever-changing landscape of the England/Wales border.
The guide provides maps and directions as well as information on the fascinating history and landscape of the trail and the ancient monument it follows.
The trail is described in day-long sections from south to north. Starting at Sedbury Cliffs on the Severn Estuary the guide describes the Trail up the wooded slopes of the Wye Valley and along the splendid ridge of the Black Mountains to Hay-on-Wye. Beyond the hills of 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 dramatic Potcysyllte Aqueduct.
