Knighton to Bucknell via Offa’s Dyke and Stow Hill

This is border country, make no mistake.

Setting off from Knighton, along the Offa’s Dyke, you’re just about in Wales but not for long. Even the railway station is in England.

The National Trail keeps you company for a few kilometres before you follow ancient ways across Stow Hill and down to Bucknell.

There’s a train service between both ends of the route, so the linear nature poses no problems.
