In the Footsteps of Offa

| August 30, 2012 | 2 Comments

This brand new film from OR Media traces the 23 mile section of the Offa’s Dyke Path between the Anglo-Saxon town of Kington and the village of Newcastle.

It includes a some historical information regarding Offa’s rise to the throne of Mercia which it is hoped will inspire viewers to find out more.

There are two main reasons for producing this film; firstly, Offa was of our folk and showed pioneering spirit and great vision in establishing his kingdom. Secondly the footage captures some beautiful English scenery in the hills of Shropshire.

This was both a physical and spiritual journey following in the footsteps of Offa and our folk. Offa’s Dyke was a great achievement. At 170 miles long it is the longest earthwork in Britain, built without the aid of modern machinery.

The film contains an image of the building of Offa’s Dyke which OR Media has kindly been allowed to use courtesy of Mark Taylor. His website is worth visiting.
