Wales in national lockdown from 6pm 23rd October

What does this mean for visiting Offa’s Dyke Path?

With effect from 6pm on Friday 23rd October until 12.01am on Monday 9th November you cannot holiday in Wales. A breach of the restrictions is a fineable offence. The Welsh government will review the lockdown or ‘circuit breaker’ in due course.

If you live in Wales you may exercise but you cannot travel to do it. You must start and finish your exercise from home.

Until 6pm on Friday 23rd October the existing local restrictions still apply. This means that if you are walking north bound along Offa’s Dyke Path you cannot transfer from Shropshire into the counties of Wrexham, Denbighshire and Flintshire.

This temporary lockdown restriction effectively prevents anyone from walking Offa’s Dyke Path as a continuous 177 mile destination.
