Offa’s Dyke Exploratory Walk Spring 2021 (Hopefully!)

Spring 2021 (date to be confirmed and subject to Covid developments from 2pm – 4pm), the Offa’s Dyke South Study Group invite people with an eye for the past to join in a walk on King Offa’s mighty earthwork, and take part in a survey of how it might have been built.

As is well known, the Dyke runs for 115 miles from the Bristol Channel to the North Wales coast, marking the border of the ancient kingdom of Mercia and the restless British warlords of what we now call Wales. We will be meeting at McKenzie Hall in Brockweir and exploring a fine section of the Dyke up to Madgett’s Hill.

Using time-honoured techniques we will be examining the profile of the Dyke in different locations, and speculating on how this amazing ancient monument was built with just the most basic hand tools.

email dickfinch@talktalk.net to let us know you’re coming, and just turn up in your walking boots and suitable clothing for the weather.
