South of Knighton: Glyndwr’s Way and Offa’s Dyke Path

A circular walk from Panpwnton Farm in Knighton. Following Glyndwr’s Way as far as Llanguno and then heading east to join Offa’s Dyke Path and following that back to the start.

Sunday 27th June 2021

This was my final full day on the Shropshire/Wales border. I awoke in my tent, feeling ready for an eighteen-mile outing. Towards the end, I’d be following a few more miles of Offa’s Dyke Path. Initially, I’d be joining Glyndwr’s Way (another National Trail) from Knighton. In between the two, I’d have to connect the lines.

Knighton and Knucklas (Offa’s Dyke Path)

Saturday 26th June 2021

It was time to leave the car alone for a couple of days. I quite enjoy being able to do this; setting off from the campsite and returning on foot, later that day. In this walk, I’d begin by following Offas Dyke Path several miles to the north, before leaving that National Trail and looping back along a variety of footpaths and bridleways.

Elan Valley Loop

Friday 25th June 2021

This would be my first walk in the Elan Valley. A place I’d been wanting to visit for a couple of years and one of the main reasons I’d decided to pitch my tent in this part of the UK. Before I booked the campsite in Knighton, I had been looking at sites around Llandridnod Wells and Rhayader… But they were either too expensive for my liking or required you to bring your own toilet!

My One Welsh Walk

A circular walk in the Brecon Beacons/Black Mountains. Introducing two friends to Sugar Loaf for the first time.

Sunday 18th October 2020

In a year that has deprived many of us from so much, I can say that I have only made the journey over to Wales for a walk just the one time. Now that Wales is in its own state of lockdown (for the third time this year), I won’t be crossing the Severn again until sometime in 2021 (fingers crossed).

I do miss the Brecon Beacons. Snowdonia. The Black Mountains and all those miles of the Wales Coast Path I’ve still yet to follow. I’d been up Sugar Loaf several times before but I thought it might be good to write about this most recent outing, as I got to share it with two friends who were new to the almost-mountain.
