It follows Offa’s Dyke, the longest of Britain’s archaeological monuments, and crosses the border of England and Wales more than 10 times, but it's not for the faint-hearted.  If you follow the whole trail it will take you over an incredible 176 miles (283 kilometres), on a journey through some of the United Kingdom’s most beautiful countryside, including 3 designated Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
