Offa’s Dyke Path

Offa’s Dyke Path was opened in the summer of 1971, linking Sedbury Cliffs near Chepstow on the banks of the Severn estuary with the coastal town of Prestatyn on the shores of the Irish sea.

It is named after, and often follows, the spectacular Dyke which 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.

In its 177 miles / 285 kilometres it passes through no less than eight different counties and crosses the border between England and Wales over 20 times. The Trail explores the tranquil Marches (as the border region is known) and passes through the Brecon Beacons National Park on the spectacular Hatterall Ridge. In addition it links no less than three Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty – the Wye Valley, the Shropshire Hills and the Clwydian Hills.

Some people have been rumoured to complete the Trail in four days, more typically two weeks are about right for the whole journey. Of course, many people choose to complete only short sections in day trips or to complete the whole Trail over many weeks, months or years!

Offa’s Dyke is only about 30 minutes walk up the hill behind St Melyd Golf Club. The surrounding district is an official area of outstanding natural beauty.
