From Kington a minibus will take us to Knighton and we begin our walk with a climb through Great Frydd Wood. We then follow the archaeological remains of the Dyke over the flat top of Ffrydd Hill. After passing the obelisk commemorating the work of local MP Richard Green Price we walk over Hawthorn Hill with impressive views to the west, especially along the Lugg Valley to the site of the battle of Bryn Glas. After some fine hilltop walking the route descends to Dolley Green and crosses the River Lugg. The climb to Pen Offa once again follows the earthwork to be rewarded with fine views of our route to the south. Descending a steep flight of steps we enter Granner Wood. Exiting the wood we walk along the top of the Dyke and after skirting Burfa Bank we cross the Hindwell Brook followed by a short section on the road to Lower Harpton. Here we have our last climb of the day over Herrock Hill and on to Rushock. Once again on the remains of the Dyke offering superb views all round (weather permitting). Turning right to leave the archaeology we continue on Offa's Dyke Path towards Kington. After crossing Kington golf course there is a gentle descent from Bradnor Hill via footpath and a quiet country lane to cross the A44 and through the town to complete our walk.
