Offa’s Dyke Path – Day 3

Day 3 – White Castle to Longtown Crossing

If I were to do this hike again, I would turn Day 2 into a longer day by continuing on past White Castle until I reached the spot where we stayed for the evening. In that way, Day 2 would be long but there would be no need for waiting for a pick-up from the hosts, no need to backtrack the next morning and a Day 3 could be nice short hike and essentially a rest day However, hindsight is wonderful and we had officially stopped at White Castle the night before so that’s where our hosts drove us the next morning.
