This excellent walk was originally submitted by Terry Price and is now being maintained by Richard Hardy.

Knighton, Powys is called 'Tref-y-Clawd' in Welsh, which means 'The Town On The Dyke'. The walk leaves Knighton southbound on Offa's Dyke Path, passing close to the 1,200-year-old earthworks and an original gateway through the defences.

Joining a very quiet, single-track road, the route maintains elevation whilst heading west then north over several hills, to join a series of tracks which meet Glyndwr's Way near Bailey Hill. This continues north before turning east, back towards Knighton.

A detour over Garth Hill gives picturesque views of the Teme Valley and then Knighton itself, sitting in a 'bowl' surrounded by hills. The Glyndwr's Way Path is rejoined for the return to the town, finishing with a walk down the main street back to the car park. The walk is classed as moderate due to its length and the occasional steepness of ascent.
