Offa’s Dyke Path

posted in: England 0
One thing I love about long distance hiking is the chance to discover a place we wouldn't necessarily choose to visit on a weekend or holiday. It turns out that Shropshire and the Offa's Dyke Path are just such a place. In fact, we liked them so much we will definitely be back for a revisit!
There were lots of places of historical interest at Ironbridge that we didn't have time to visit. And we both thoroughly enjoyed the 80 mile section of the Offa's Dyke Path that we followed.
Admittedly, a large part of our enjoyment was relief at finally having a relatively well-maintained, well-signposted route to follow, but it was also a really lovely route in a part of the country we don't know well, with some great scenery and places of interest along the way. See photos for further information and hopefully inspiration!
