Overview

Join us for a lovely walk with  hills, beautiful views and dragons. After leaving Kington we join the Mortimer Trail to Knill Garraway where we head down to the tiny village of Knill to check out the dragon and church. We will then follow Hindwell brook to join The Offa's Dyke Path. We will skirt around and up Herrock Hill before returning to Kington and revisiting the Offa’s Dyke Path. It will be muddy and wet in places with a mix of farm tracks, fields and grassy paths. There are several stiles. A couple of steep ascents.
