What's this about?Offa's Dyke
is an 8th century earthwork that runs most of the length of the Welsh-English border; these days there's a long-distance footpath
that follows it. Alternatively, I could walk from one side of England to the other.Why do I want to do this?
I'd like to do a long-distance walk that's not a pilgrimage. I want to be able to say that I've walked from one side of a country to another. (I didn't do this on the Camino de Santiago, as I stopped in Santiago de Compostela and didn't continue to Finisterre.)How will I know when I've done it?
I'll have traversed, on foot, either
the length of Offa's Dyke from the Severn to Prestatyn (or vice versa), or
from one coast of England to the opposite.I'll record this
in this journal, though you probably won't hear much from me while it's actually in progress.
