Walking with Offa through Wales is the second Trinity Travel Talk in a new series of five talks by Steuart and Anita Kellington and will take place on Friday 1st November 2019 in Trinity Methodist Church and Community Hub, Parson Lane, Clitheroe, BB7 2JY. Admission is £5 (no tickets) including interval refreshments with net proceeds for the Trinity Methodist Church Development Fund (Charity number 1129609). All five talks take place on Friday evenings from October to March at 7.30pm
Join the Kellington’s on one of their favourite National Trails as they follow the impressive Offa’s Dyke, built along the border of Wales in the eighth Century. Discover the trail from Chepstow by the Severn Bridge to Prestatyn in North Wales. See the beautiful valleys of the River Severn and Wye, remote and outstanding scenery in the Black Mountains, rolling countryside in Mid-Wales and the fascinating historic towns of Chepstow, Monmouth and Hay-on-Wye as we walk the 180 miles.
Steuart said, “We have walked most of the National Trails in the UK but we particularly enjoyed this trail when we first walked it in 1997. The originators of the trail say “The trail is not the oldest, nor the longest but the best”. It is certainly a great walk with challenging sections, extensive views and a lot of history. We chose April 2019 for our walk hoping that the weather would be as kind as on our first walk which was also in April. It didn’t quite work out that way! We had snow on two days which made walking difficult but the rolling hills in Wales looked beautiful covered in snow.
Anita said “Spring is my favourite time to walk when leaves are emerging and flowers cover the ground in woodland. I found the walking hard but rewarding and enjoyed the scenery and historical aspects very much. I also enjoyed the company of four friends who shared the walk with us.”
Brochures listing all five Trinity Travel Talks are now available from Trinity Methodist Church, Clitheroe Library and the Platform Gallery.
