Offa's Dyke path leaving Penycloddiau
Offa's Dyke path leaving Penycloddiau
Heading southeast, Offa's Dyke path crosses the rampart of the iron-age hill fort, Penycloddiau, and descends steeply to the forestry boundary on its way to the next summit, with the next hill fort, Moel Arthur. The "traditional" intrusive interpretive sign one might expect at this point has been replaced with a rather more discreet wooden post which bears a plaque with a phone number, on the somewhat optimistic assumption that everyone who is remotely interested in the archaeology will be carrying a mobile phone, fully charged, and is able to hear it in the adverse weather conditions which are hardly the exception in such an environment. So I have no clue as to what I was seeing, as such technology is not what I want to be carrying about on a walk in the great Welsh outdoors.
