Offa’s Dyke Path – Day 5

Day 5 – Hay-on-Wye to Kington

Leaving from the front door of our B&B, we took a left hand turn, walked across the River Wye via the Hay Bridge and turned immediately right and once again we were on our way along the Offa’s Dyke Path. The first part of the path followed the river and was a nice way to start the day and loosen the muscles before doing any climbing.

Very soon along the trail we were privy to a wonderful display of sheep herding as a farmer and his dog came through a field at the same time that we were crossing in the opposite direction. It didn’t take long for the sheep to lose interest in us when the border collie entered the mix.

Offa’s Dyke Path – Day 1

Day 1 – Chepstow to Redbrook:

An Early Morning Send-Off - B&B in Chepstow, WalesBreakfast was excellent and it was nice to be able to talk to someone who had walked at least part of the path himself so we would gain an idea of some of the issues that we might face along the way. It took quite a while to figure out where we had really ended up the night before, but once that that had been determined our B&B host agreed to give us a lift to that point on the Offa’s Dyke Path so that we would not need to retrace too much of our earlier travels. His sense of humour was displayed openly :-). (Chepstow, Monmouthshire, Wales)
