Chepstow Castle and the start of Offa’s Dyke Path
After a few days of sweet relaxing and idling in Swansea it’s getting serious again. We’re in Chepstow and about to start our next hike – and this time we’re not only doing it for fun, but to be included into the National Trail’s hall of fame. So we got ourselves two Completion Cards from the Tourist Information, which we will have to fill with stamps from different locations along the way. So no shortcuts and cheating with public transport this time.
The path starts in Sedbury, around two miles south of Chepstow. We walked this short section this afternoon, in sunny and warm weather. Let’s hope it stays like this or the next 16 days or so…
Before we started walking we visited Chepstow’s Norman castle. It’s magnificent, overlooking the river Wye. Here are some pictures:
