Latest on visiting Offa’s Dyke Path – 12th July 2020
The full length of Offa’s Dyke Path is now available as an end-to-end destination. This was made possible by the re-opening of Hatterrall Ridge in Brecon Beacons National Park and Loggerheads Moel Famau Country Park in the Clwydian Hills AONB; both now open to visitors. Of course walkers must check before setting out that they have booked accommodation that is compliant with the Covid regulations applicable in England and Wales.
Campsites in England with shared facility blocks opened on 4th July (see news bulletin of 6th July on the Camping and Caravan Club website).
Campsites in Wales will be able to re-open from 25th July, as long as coronvirus rates continue to fall (see news bulletin of 10th July on the Wales Online website). In the report Wales First Minister Mark Drakeford is quoted as saying: “They will be able to re-open, provided we make a success of the re-opening of self-contained accommodation,” he told BBC 5 Live. “Campsites have shared facilities, and it is not just like going into a toilet in a shop, you have to use the shared facilities. There are showers, kitchens, toilets and so on. We need to make sure campsites in Wales are well prepared, are safe to re-open”.
The Offa’s Dyke Walkers’ Passport boxes are also back on site. You can buy the Passport from our on-line shop either on its own or as part of a discounted guidebook / Passport / Essential Guide bundle.
