stage 4 — Offa’s Dyke North

10–11 May 2013

Back into high ground over the Clwydian Mountains and then down to Prestatyn and the end of Offa’s Dyke.

 

  1. day 23 – Llangollen to Ruthin

    miles walked: 15.6   completed: 202.6   to go: 857.7

    A day that starts with a journey to World’s End and finishes at Weatherspoons, taking in an Iron Age fort, Heathcliff moorland, and, guided by a gaping socket led eventually to the future site of a 21st century shepherd’s hut.

  2. day 24 – Ruthin to Prestatyn

    miles walked: 20.7   completed: 223.3   to go: 837

    A long day, over high mist-swathed moorland, through horizontal stinging hail, across rolling farmland, and honey-sweet gorse hills, passing pack-laden school parties and meeting walkers from Colwyn Bay, before eventually skirting the escarpement high above Prestatyn and, with the falling sun, to the sea and the northern tip of Offa’s Dyke path.
