Tintern to Offa’s Dyke

31st July 2020                                   Map of walk

On a very hot day, we parked by Tintern Abbey

and walked past a Welsh Dragon

Crossing the River Wye on the former railway, but now footway, bridge

 

First we walked to Brockweir, then uphill onto the Offa’s Dyke Path.

Walking south we reached this view point called the Devil’s Pulpit, overlooking Tintern Abbey – that is the bridge we walked over

We are nearly back at the Abbey – but it is on the othe side of the river

It was good to be walking under the trees most of the time, as it was one of the hottest days of the year.
