Started walking north by the canal to meet up with Offa's Dyke path. We spent the first two hours taking waterproofs on and off in the intermittent rain. The rain then eased and we had a clear run until two minutes before we arrived at the b&b.
The route was mainly flat walking over farm land following a river stop bak, and the eventually Offa's Dyke. A lot of concentration was needed to avoid treading in cow pats or sticking the walking poles in them. We saw three families of swans one pair having seven cygnets.
There were plenty of ripe blackberries along the route and at one point a landowner was giving away apples to passing walkers.
As it was a short day we stopped for lunch at the Golden Lion in Four Crosses to pass the time.
