We walked Offa's Dyke path from 20th May to the 1st June, and enjoyed almost every minute. Lots of good weather, too hot at times and only one bad day of rain. The scenery was stunning and so varied and although there were no big mountains to climb, most days saw a fair amount of height gained. I was surprised how close we got to the dyke, even walking on it sometimes - which seemed wrong somehow! The history of the dyke and surrounding areas was fascinating and we met so many lovely people en-route. The accommodation was all excellent, with one or two truly memorable places.

Photo 1 shows a section of the dyke on day 1 in Worgan Wood. The woodlands on that day were spectacular with wild garlic and bluebells in abundance.

Photo 2 is the Pontcysyllte aqueduct, which we walked across - a memorable experience.

Photo 3 is an old miners cottage on the cliffs above Prestatyn where we had a break. Apparently he lived there with his wife and 9 children!
