Offa's Dyke Path water sources
« on: 06:34:18, 07/07/20 »
has anyone done the Offa's Dyke recently?
I've heard the main problem is water (as i'll be wild camping)..
travelling through farmland i'm suspicious of heavy metals and pesticides so water filters are pretty useless..
apparently there are public taps along the way.. anyone have a list?


Any help gratefully received.. cheers  :)

At another Forum member's suggestion I downloaded the app 'Refill' maybe this might help you? I haven't had a chance to properly study it yet but I will soon.

It's a bit clunky but it seems to work.. some silly thing about earning points and waiting to search another location?! i think it's trying to make a game of it  ???
but tells you shops/pubs that are willing to refill your bottle so that's nice
Thank you!

The National Trail website : nationaltrail.co.uk will list available water taps for offa dyke.
Can't post a link at the moment - I keep getting security validation error messages.

The National Trail website seems to show food and drink outlets for the Offa's Dyke path but there is a nil return if you set the map filter for water points.
