Tiddenham Chase & Oakhill Wood
15 people attending
5 places left
This route takes in a stretch of the Offa's Dyke path that's on the English side of the border before dropping down towards Woolaston and if the weather permits we may even get some views of the Severn (Sorry it didn't when I was planning and hence the rather plain photo's)
After a stop for some lunch we'll head down to St Andrew's Church in Woolaston before a long but gradual climb back up to the car park
Dogs will be welcome on the walk but there are a number of stiles that larger dogs may find difficult. We also pass through a couple of farms where they would need to be kept under control.
