The Shropshire Way.

The Shropshire Way explores the varied beautiful landscape and fascinating history of Shropshire, one of the largest rural counties in England, adjoining the border with Wales. At its heart is Shrewsbury, a stunning medieval town. In recent years Shropshire Council has progressively upgraded and waymarked the original route and created new links across the county. It currently consists of 27 linked sections, covering almost 300 miles.


This guidebook, based on my walking experience of all route sections and research, details opportunities for multi-day walks of varying length, and 33 linear day walks linked to public transport covering most of the trail. It offers a continuous variable long distance circular trail of up to 202 ¼ miles around Shropshire, a circular trail of up to 98 ½ miles around North Shropshire and up to 119 ¼ miles around South Shropshire, as well as other suggested shorter multi-day walks.


Explore Shropshire Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, enjoying extensive views. Visit historic fortified border towns of Ludlow, Clun and Bishop’s Castle. Stroll along the Montgomery & Llangollen Canals, past lakes near Ellesmere and rare raised bogs, to Whitchurch. Visit attractive villages, with ancient churches and traditional pubs, castles and Iron Age hillforts. Marvel at Ironbridge Gorge, a World Heritage Site and enjoy Much Wenlock the birthplace of the modern Olympic Games.


The guidebook provides detailed route descriptions with accompanying maps, historical content, guidance and practical information.
