End of the Path of Offa's Dyke as Colin Reaches Prestatyn

The final stretch of Offa’s Dyke culminated at Prestatyn where Colin was welcomed at just after 3.00 pm by a crowd of 25 well-wishers, including his family. He was in very good spirits and looked very fit after his arduous journey.

Before celebrations commenced Colin tossed a stone which he had carried from journey’s start at Chepstow into the sea off the Barkby Beach adjacent to the Offa’s Dyke monument.

David Thomas presented Colin with a well-earned bottle of whisky and his wife, Elaine, with a bouquet of flowers in recognition of the invaluable part she has played in this epic adventure. Colin’s family provided Buck’s Fizz, sausage rolls and a special “Map of Wales” cake for all to share.

Commenting on the journey, Colin said “although at times the going was so tough I had thoughts of giving up; knowing that so many Brethren, friends, and family were behind me, knowing that my efforts would provide much-needed support for my chosen charities, gave me the encouragement I needed to overcome the bad times”.
