A guided walk, part of Chepstow Walking Festival exploring the history of the Offa’s Dyke Scheduled Monument, the conservation efforts currently being undertaken to protect the monument and the wildlife around it. Starting off across the Gloucestershire Wildlife Trust reserve at The Park, we’ll then make our way to the section of the Offa’s Dyke Path National Trail which is under the guardianship of English Heritage. This section of the Trail which runs through not only two Sites of Special Scientific Interest but also a Special Area of Conservation, has undergone significant improvement works in recent years led by the Gloucestershire Public Rights of Way Team in conjunction with Historic England, Forestry England, and local landowners. It has stunning viewpoints at several places, including at the Devils Pulpit which is matched by some truly unique sections of the ancient scheduled monument itself where you can see every aspect of this structure, exactly as it was built hundreds of years ago to stop invading forces. Just before the final piece of the walk we’ll take a quick visit to Chase Farm, for those who wish to taste some of the several flavours of ice cream made and sold here. Then we’ll finish the walk as we started with a stroll across another key SSSI and GWT wildlife site at Poor’s Allotment, which this time last year was hosting a rare visitor in the form of a Dartford Warbler. What spring migrants might we see and hear this year?
