Seven of us set out from the Offa's Dyke Centre in Knighton and took Offa's Dyke north up Panpunton Hill.

After a couple of miles we took the Bridle Path down to Five Turnings observing a near miss car accident. We then continued up a muddy lane to the top of Stow Hill and then turned back down past Holloway Rocks to Stow Church where we had lunch.

Up until now the weather had been quite good but it started to rain on the last leg which took us across the fields to the outskirts of Knighton. We finished up walking through Kinsley Wood into the town itself.

About 8 miles and it took us about 4 hours.
