Books & Maps for the Offas Dyke

Offa's Dyke Path is one of twelve designated National Trails. With Hadrians Wall It is the only national trail to follow a man-made feature. Built by Offa, King of Mercia in 757 to 796 AD the dyke formed the boundary between England & Wales, running 182 miles from Prestatyn in the north to Sedbury, near Chepstow in the south. Men from the border country along the Mercian (English) side all had to contribute: they could send food or they could build 128cm of dyke.

The purpose of Offa's-Dyke is to provide you with a means to book your own accommodation and/or take advantage of other commercial services offered along the route. A factsheet is provided to help you plan your itinerary whilst a chat bulletin board will allow you to ask your unanswered questions and draw upon the advice of those who have previously undertaken the walk.

I hope you find Offa's-Dyke useful and I welcome all comments as a means to keep improving and evolving the site. Please mention Offa's-Dyke when booking so that the future of the site will be assurred and that other walkers may benefit as you have done. Happy walking.
