Description

Guidebook to 32 walks in the hills of Shropshire. The walks, which are graded easy, moderate or hard, range from 3 miles (5km) to 12 miles (19km) and can be walked in all seasons. The selected routes take in highlights such as The Wrekin, Wenlock Edge, Long Mynd and Stiperstones, Castle Ring and Bury Ditches.

Featuring 1:50K OS mapping (shown at 1:40K for greater clarity), step-by-step route descriptions, as well as information on accommodation, getting around, bases for the Shropshire hills and history of the region, the guide details everything you need to walk in Shropshire – and more.

From Neolithic standing stones, Bronze Age stone circles, and hilltop forts dating back to the Iron Age, Shropshire offers more than just picturesque landscapes and rewarding walking. Discover history on the hills as well as natural beauty, all within easy driving distance from Birmingham and Manchester.

  • Activities
    Walking, hiking
  • Seasons
    All the routes can be done in all seasons, with Autumn being best for those in woodland. August, when the heather is out, is best for Stiperstones and the Long Mynd.
  • Centres
    Llanymynech, Telford, Church Stretton, Craven Arms, Clun, Ludlow, Bridgnorth and Much Wenlock
  • Difficulty
    Shropshire's summits are generally easy to climb. Being such a fertile county its low level paths can become overgrown in Summer. Lightweight boots are the best footwear and if you're wearing shorts, take make sure you have waterproof trousers to protect your legs from nettles and dew covered long grasses.
  • Must See
    The volcanic peaks of Stiperstones and Caer Caradoc, steep-sided, crag-fringed Batches of the Long Mynd, numerous Iron and Bronze Age hilltop forts, and charming little towns and villages with half-timbered buildings and fascinating historical heritage make Shropshire a hillwalkers paradise.
