Ramblers Cymru Big Welsh Walk 2021

Walker on Offa's Dyke Path

Join us for a series of led walks over three weekends in September when we will explore sections of the Offa’s Dyke Path in celebration of 50 years of the path receiving designation as a National Trail.

The ticket price includes a hoodie, goodie bag and more!

The Trail, which was opened in the summer of 1971, links Sedbury Cliffs on the river Severn estuary with the coastal town of Prestatyn on the shores of the Irish sea. Stretching for 177 mile (285 Km) it is named after, and often follows, the spectacular Dyke King Offa ordered to be constructed in the 8th century, thought to divide his Kingdom of Mercia from rival kingdoms in what is now Wales.

It takes in eight different counties and crosses the England - Wales border more than 20 times.

From the breath-taking views of the Clwydian Range to gentle riverside rambles, the festival offers walks for all levels with a long, an intermediate and a Family Walk in each of three locations — Moel Famau, Knighton and Tintern. 

People walking on the Offa's Dyke Devils Pulpit walk

On Saturday 4 September, walkers can choose between three walks at Moel Famau including a challenging 11-mile trek featuring a bronze age burial mound and a family friendly five-mile stroll through woods and rivers.

The following weekend the walks start from Knighton and feature a particularly stunning section of the path as it skirts King Offa’s earthwork.

The final three walks feature Tintern in the Wye Valley, including a climb to the famous Devil’s Pulpit above Tintern Abbey. Legend holds that the Devil used this scenic spot to hurl insults at the monks of Tintern Abbey below.
