The Offa's Dyke Path is one of 3 National Trails in Wales, and was officialy opened in 1971. This guidebook describes the walk in 15 stages, and has been designed to allow some flexibility in following the official route, offering suggestions for circular walks covering sections of the dyke.

The Offa's Dyke Path is a popular choice among long-distance walkers, and is signed and waymarked throughout. The walk makes its way through varied, sometimes wild, often remote, and frequently superb scenery and it can be completed comfortably in less than a fortnight.

Offa's Dyke was constructed by the powerful King of Mercia in the late eighth century to mark out the western boundary of his kingdom. Hundreds of years later this great linear earthwork became the inspiration for the National Trail traversing the border country of England and Wales. Starting from Sedbury Cliffs in the south, on the River Severn close to Chepstow, heading north to Prestatyn near the estuary of the Dee.
