THE SLOPE OF SELATTYN HILL: OFFA'S DYKE AND DITCH IN HIGH COUNTRY

THE SLOPE OF SELATTYN HILL: OFFA'S DYKE AND DITCH IN HIGH COUNTRY

Offa's Dyke and Wat's Dyke again come close together near the old border town of Oswestry. The photograph shows an excellent remnant of the former where it breasts the slope of Selattyn Hill a little to the north. This is one of the places where investigation has shown the ditch of the dyke to have been protected by an outer wall of earth. In common with those sections shown on pp. 1424, 1426, this has been scheduled as authentic by the Ancient Monuments Commission.
