Offa’s Dyke Path 1 Sedbury Cliffs to Chepstow

Sat Sept 30th

3 trains got me to Chepstow. Checked into Castle View B&B which was a sort of hotel and restaurant. I was in a separate building at the back. The wifi password was chipshop so this may be a clue to its former use.

Straight out to walk the first section of the ODP which starts from Sedbury Cliffs so to get there you go through housing estates and along fences of people’s back gardens and of course the sewage works but there is a good view to the “old” Severn Bridge and a good section of Offa’s Dyke and bank straight away.

Back to my room then out to Tesco for some supplies. The room was cold when the rain started but I eventually got some heating sorted out.

Total miles 3.

The acorn is the official sign of the National Trails
It’s the actual start
Nice old bridge leading to the Chepstow castle
