After crossing the Severn Road Bridge into Wales, I follow the Wye Valley and the Offa’s Dyke Path northwards along the beautiful Welsh Borders, passing Tintern Abbey. At Monmouth I turn to the north-west and discover the stunning Black Hills that hide the ruined but hauntingly beautiful Llanthony Priory. From there I continue along Offa’s Dyke to Knighton and on to the delightful Shropshire village of Clun.

Crossing into Derbyshire at Uttoxeter I then head into limestone country, following a succession of half-hidden limestone dales to Castleton before dropping down to Edale for the start of the Pennine Way.
