Just over 10 miles linear walk Oswestry Racecourse to Trefor basin following Offa’s Dyke


Ascent:    589m     Descent:    814m


This walk, roughly Oswestry to Trevor/Trefor Basin, is one of the less physically demanding sections of the Offa’s Dyke Path but it does offer three key attractions: clear, well-defined sections of the dyke itself, crossing the English-Welsh border several times over, and a dramatic conclusion at an existing Unesco-listed site. Surfing the top of the dyke with views of the Ceiriog Valley, a brush with the dead on the fringe of Chirk Castle and a final, triumphant stride across the highest navigable aqueduct ever built add lots of historic colour and interest to this heritage-rich walk.
