Another great hike near Knighton, which has a good claim to be the walking capital of the Welsh Borders. Start at Knucklas, which is on the same railway and has bus links, then wind through the countryside for the first half of the day. After a wiggling route, you reach the Offa's Dyke Path for a straightforward stomp towards Knighton.
