Sunday 8 June 2014. A combination of thunderstorms and sport on TV yesterday meant that I had a day off from walking but it was back to it today. The weather forecast suggested that there might be a few showers so I made and early start and only felt a few spots of rain by late morning. I drove to Newcastle on Clun to walk another section of Offa’s Dyke. It wasn’t until I got there that I realized that I’ve been there before and repeated some of my previous walk.
A gentle section of road walking soon gave way to two serious climbs as I turned on to the Offa’s Dyke path. The first was nearly 400ft which took me to this half way marker on the Offa’s Dyke.
The second climb was a little higher and a little longer and just as hard. Although it was a shortish route of 6.3 miles there was a total of 1,460ft of ascent: quite enough for a Sunday morning.
