Hergest Ridge & Offa's Dyke - [3½ miles]

A cloudy day with the promise of rain didn't deter 12 of us from driving to Kington and setting off west along Offa's Dyke.

After about a mile the group split up and Geri took 4 of the party straight up along the Dyke to the trig point, pausing for a spot of view admiring, refreshment and rests before retracing their steps. Graham took the remaining 6 members along to Bage and down to Upper Hergest turning for home at the Motte & Bailey of Castle Twts. We had to 'move' about 5 young heffers who had taken residence on the footpath, but they obliged and moved along.

It was then a gentle climb to Park Wood and return to the cars via Haywood Common and Haywood Farm. Just under 3 miles - the group that went straight along the Dyke did 3½ miles.
