After alighting the bus in Evenjobb a short walk along the lane brings us to the southern edge of Granner Wood. Here we join the Offa's Dyke Path path heading south towards Kington. Walking on the archaeological remains of the great earthwork we head towards Burfa Bank topped by the its Iron Age Fort. We will skirt around the Burfa (missing the fort) to cross the Hindwell Brook via the old Ditchyeld Bridge and after a short section on the road we climb between Herrock Hill and Knill Garaway Wood and then on to the crest of Rushock Hill. Here again we follow the archaeological Dyke for some fine hill top walking with superb views all round (weather permitting). We turn right to leave the archaeology but follow Offa's Dyke Path towards Kington. Crossing Kington golf course (the highest 18 hole course in England) views of Kington open up below us and a gentle descent from Bradnor Hill via footpath and a quiet country lane to cross the A44 and through the town completes our walk.
