Ever heard of a bloke called Offa? King of Mercia, he instigated the building of a defensive dyke. 12 centuries later a long distance path was laid out, roughly following the line of Offa’s Dyke, and thirty years later still two friends set out to walk it.
How difficult could it be, walking from one end of Wales to the other? Loaded down with maps, guide books and global positioning systems they were soon to find out and only 5 minutes after leaving Chepstow were monumentally lost! Soon they were enjoying the scenery, watching the wildlife and overdosing on dried apricots. Staying in haunted English castles and heavenly Welsh guest houses they made their way north.

Having walked Offa’s Dyke many times it was interesting to read someone else’s account of the walk, good reading

The perfect antidote to the 21st century

I should hate this book. I hate Facebook because it is full of inane wittering about mundane things and ‘Walking with Offa’ is from cover to cover a story of the mundane:stepping in sheep poo and the sulphur content of apricots are two major themes.

Offa would have been amused; I certainly was

Julia certainly knows how to lay out an entertaining and interesting travelogue and this book is no exception. Until you have walked or cycled for a week or more you really don’t appreciate how important the whole experience is from route, planning to experiencing the local history and wildlife, the ups and downs of each day and the ultimate of unknowns – what will the next B&B be like!

Great book, just don

Fully up to my expectations! A really good read, covering a most entertaining and interesting walk over territory that I am very familiar with. A bit coarse in some places by my standards, but normally quite acceptable. Can’t wait to read about the next adventure preferably back on a bike.
