Richard and Harriet take a walk along Offa’s Dyke near the lovely town of Montgomery in Montgomershire in Wales.
Offa’s Dyke is a massive linear earthwork, roughly followed by some of the current border between England and Wales. In places, it is up to 65 feet (19.8 m) wide (including its flanking ditch) and 8 feet (2.4 m) high. In the 8th century it formed some kind of delineation between the kingdom of Mercia and the Welsh kingdom of Powys.
