The guy who would like this article is @alexjack our resident Welshman.It looks like the Brits have more than Haderain Wall... It has King Offa Dyke...
Offa's Dyke (Welsh: Clawdd Offa) is a large linear earthwork that roughly follows the current border between England and Wales. The structure is named after Offa, the Anglo-Saxon king of Mercia from AD 757 until 796, who is traditionally believed to have ordered its construction.
Here is a link that shows where it is...
Thanks for posting that 5fish. That border has always been a problem.Look at this another dyke built in Wales across from Offa Dyke... call Wat Dyke...
Wat's Dyke (Welsh: Clawdd Wat) is a 40-mile (64 km) earthwork running through the northern Welsh Marches from Basingwerk Abbey on the River Dee estuary, passing east of Oswestry and on to Maesbury in Shropshire, England. It runs generally parallel to Offa's Dyke, sometimes within a few yards but never more than three miles (5 km) away. It now appears insignificant, sometimes a raised hedgerow and in other places is now no more than a cropmark, the ditch long since filled in and the bank ploughed away, but originally it was a considerable construction, considered to be strategically more sophisticated than Offa's Dyke. The date of construction is disputed, ranging from sub-Roman to the early ninth century.
I think @alexjack like to see this as well...
