A few years ago, I challenged myself with the quiet intention of completing more of the walks available in the Walk West series of eBooks (all of which are free to download from this website). I couldn’t recall the last time I had embarked on one of Geoff Mullet’s walks and I wasn’t feeling too enthusiastic about another local walk on the Mendip Hills.
I dove in to Walk West Again (the second title in this trilogy) and printed out instructions and a basic map for the final route on the contents page.

A circular walk from Panpwnton Farm in Knighton. Following Glyndwr’s Way as far as Llanguno and then heading east to join Offa’s Dyke Path and following that back to the start.

This was my final full day on the Shropshire/Wales border. I awoke in my tent, feeling ready for an eighteen-mile outing. Towards the end, I’d be following a few more miles of Offa’s Dyke Path.

It was time to leave the car alone for a couple of days. I quite enjoy being able to do this; setting off from the campsite and returning on foot, later that day. In this walk, I’d begin by following Offa‘s Dyke Path several miles to the north, before leaving that National Trail and looping back along a variety of footpaths and bridleways.

I remember this as being one of those Mondays (I work Saturdays and get Mondays off) where I was in two minds about going out for a walk. It was sometime in the mid-afternoon before I finally left home and drove out to Christon, a small village between Bleadon Hill and Crook Peak.
This was not one of my own routes but one I found within the excellent series of Beyond Bristol books.
