Slow walk on Offa's Dyke
On unfamiliar territory this week, as I have been walking my first section of Offa's Dyke, a path I have wanted to walk for years. The weather was not great on the first day and the walking is strenuous compared with around here! However the scenery along the Wye is glorious and both Chepstow and Monmouth are towns worth spending some time in. The villages of Redbrook and Brockweir also have a great deal of charm. It took me two days to walk the 18 miles from Sedbury Cliff to Monmouth. I was pretty tired at the end of the second day!
