A walk as part of the Shropshire Way Walking Festival.

Meeting /starting point. Shropshire Hills Discovery Centre, School Road, Craven Arms SY7 9RS. Parking is available.

Brief outline of the route. We begin with a bus ride from Craven Arms to our start point in Ludlow. We will follow the Shropshire Way from outside Ludlow’s historic castle, through the Plymouth Estate to cross the river Teme at Bromfield. We then continue through fields, lanes and woodland up through Aldon Gutter, the only vaguely significant climb of the day, before dropping into the Onny valley to pass the fortified medieval manor house of Stokesay Castle, before reaching journey’s end at the Discovery Centre for tea, cake and a browse of the shop. Note that there are no refreshments on route, so please bring drink and food. You should dress for the weather in suitable outdoor clothing.

Distance and ascent. 16.5 km (10.5 miles) with 350 metres of ascent. Expect 4-5 hours walking.

Booking arrangements. Numbers are limited to 10 people to ensure a place on the bus. Please note you will need to pay for your bus fare (£2.00) and refreshments at the finish.
