Car Free Walks newsletter 13

Our Autumn 2013 newsletter is now out

November 2013 - 

Walk here...

The Offa's Dyke Path, on the Wales–England border, is fine walking territory. And thanks to the Offa Hoppa buses, it's easy to get around car-free. Several of their bus walks can be found on our website and their is more information about walking in the region on their own website.
