He followed the Offa’s Dyke Castles Alternative route, and hit a problem because the route crosses the River Monnow on a footbridge that no longer exists. I’ve quickly put together what I hope is an alternative way to cross the river via a road bridge, and amended the route description (again, it’s on this website – see the top of the page). I’ve done this from maps: I haven’t been able to get down there to try it out yet.
