Joining Point 1 – Bridge over the A48 - NP16 7ED

We suggest parking your car in one of the Chepstow car parks (all are Pay & Display) then walking back up the A48 from the traffic lights by St Mary’s Priory towards Gloucester. You will cross the River Wye then the pavement turns into steps up to the road bridge over the A48 and this is where you can wait for the walkers. The Offa’s Dyke path sign posts from here to Sedbury Cliffs are not always easy to find which is why we suggest waiting for the walkers who will have a guide with them.

Joining Point 2 – Buttington Tump - STOP PRESS! Car parking change - NP16 7HD

The SatNav code will get you to Buttington Hill but please watch out for signs to Border Prayer Relay car parking and follow them instead of your SatNav! Please don’t park on the main road when you see the Offa’s Dyke crossing sign on Buttington Hill but turn left (there will be signs) up the dirt track and park in the field where indicated. Walk back towards the main road and turn left along the Dyke path which is signposted. You could wait for the walkers here or continue to Sedbury Cliffs to wait for them there.




Directions to Chepstow


From Gloucester:

Our advice is to come via the A48, time-wise there isn’t much in it – but if you take M5 you need to take the M4 West signs to South Wales (you will have to pay the toll on the bridge too) – then follow the directions below From Bristol M4.


From Gloucester or Forest of Dean – A48:

The A48 will bring you into Chepstow over the River Wye to the traffic lights with Tesco on the left and St Mary’s Priory Church on the right. Turn right at these traffic lights then left into a car park opposite the church – see the map for other car parks.


From Monmouth – A466:

The A466 will bring you down the Wye Valley and into Chepstow past the Chepstow Racecourse. At the Racecourse roundabout take the 2nd exit and keep to 30mph! Continue through traffic lights and the next roundabout  is Highbeech roundabout so follow the directions below From all southern routes.


From South Wales - M4:

Coming from Newport along M4, take the M48 just after the Magor Services. Take the Chepstow exit and then the 1st exit off the roundabout then follow directions below From all southern routes.


From Bristol – M4:

Stay on M4 and take the M48 exit if possible (it is sometimes closed due to high winds or maintenance). The toll here is currently £5.70 for cars, then cross the original Severn Bridge and take the 1st exit at the end of the bridge to Chepstow. At the roundabout take the 3rd exit to Chepstow.

If M48 is closed (bad luck…) – continue on M4 over the new Severn Bridge – the toll here is also £5.70 for cars - to Magor Services and take this exit, at the roundabout take the 3rd exit signposted back to Bristol and the next exit signposted M48 to Chepstow. Take the Chepstow exit and then the 1st exit off the roundabout then follow From all southern routes.


From all southern routes:

Continue to the Highbeech roundabout and take the 3rd exit A48 to Chepstow.

Coming down the hill into Chepstow:
