Offa is known as the greatest Anglo-Saxon ruler of the eighth century, treated as an equal by Charlemagne and establishing a new currency based on the silver penny which remained the standard coin of England for many centuries. Why then in planning a dyke to keep out the Welsh did he end it at Prestatyn of all places ? Just as disasterous a decision as Windsor Castle being built so close to Heathrow Airport !
