Having crossed the River Teme into England Offa's Dyke path runs along the Panpunton Hill ridge towards Cwm-Sanaham Hill then travels further north towards Church Stoke.

This view is from the top of the dyke although the path runs along the bottom (on the left).

  The River Teme, Knighton, Radnorshire, Wales   Offa's Dyke, Knighton.

This section is near Rhos-y-Meirch, south of Knighton, and, as you can probably see, is covered in Bluebells. Although the dyke would have been bare when it was built parts have since become wooded.

  The Offa's Dyke Centre, Knighton, Radnorshire, Wales   Offa's Dyke Centre, Knighton.

The Offa's Dyke Centre has a large display about Offa's Dyke together with a good selection of books and maps. Entrance to the centre is free and there is free car parking. There are tables where one can sit and have coffee and cake and, let me tell you, the cake is utterly scrumptious.

This centre is run by the Offa's Dyke Association, which is a charity, and it is financially independant i.e. it doesn't recieve any grants so if you can afford to make a donation then please do. There is a link to their website on the Radnorshire county page.
