OFFA’S DYKE ROUTE IN WALES

The ancient Border

OFFA’S DYKE PATH is an amazing JOURNEY along the Anglo-Welsh border. Wales is the Celtic land of mystery, myth and magic. It has been host to mighty wizards and legendary kings.

Her borderland with England had been the arena for much turmoil over the past two thousand years since the Roman invasion.
