The route

This somewhat challenging circular route around Graig Hill offers spectacular views of the beautiful Shropshire Countryside and out over the border into Wales. The route picks up the ancient monument and National Trail of Offa’s Dyke a large linear earthworks that roughly follows the current England/Wales border.

Food, drink and accommodation

Imagine patrolling the border without a decent pub. How would Offa’s Dyke have been built without them? Over a thousand years later, keep up the tradition and stop for a drink or a bite to eat.

** Please note that The Crown at Newcastle on Clun has reopened as a pub, serving real ales, home cooked food and offering accommodation. For more information please see: www.crown-newcastle.com or call 01588 640271**
