Walk 44 [9 miles] - Llanfair Waterdine & Offa's Dyke

OS201 OS137 garmin

Ian Graves led us on a 9 mile anticlockwise journey from Llanfair Waterdine picking up the Jack Mytton Way before turning north and climbing to Offas Dyke where we stopped for coffee.

Coming off Offa's Dyke after coffee

Then a gentle downhill walk to Stoney Pound before turning for home. The weather was bright and once we had left Offas Dyke was surprisingly warm although the heavy rain of preceding days had the ground wet underfoot.

Beautiful views from Offas Dyke Path

Then there was the long and steady climb up Weston Hill where Geri was reunited with yet another lost glove!

Lunchtime and Ian shows Colin where we went and where we are...

..and the rest of us looked at this

Meanwhile the rest of us took in the great view We stopped for lunch (after grumblings in the ranks) on a hillside overlooking Cwm Collo before taking a shortcut and crossing Crochen Brook where most of the ladies in the walk literally filled their boots!! Then down to Mellin-y-Grogue and along the road to our starting point.

A delightful walk and many thanks to Ian Graves for researching and leading us.
