20 Walks in and around Shrewsbury

20 Walks in and around Shrewsbury

by: Shrewsbury Ramblers
This guide has been written to appeal to all abilities, the longest walk being six miles and most being under five. The majority are within a radius of ten miles from Shrewsbury and the start of many can be reached by public transport.
Panoramic views are to be had from fifteen of the walks and they are certainly easily attained. In addition, each walk has been devised to include features of special interest, whether historical, geological or having a connection with one of Shropshire's heroes. Here there is something for all the family to enjoy and discover, whether you are looking for a day out with a picnic or a stroll from the town in less than half a day.

Each walk chapter begins with an overview including distance, grade, terrain, start and finish, OS grid reference and parking information. This is followed by detailed route finding instructions in numbered paragraphs, the numbers also being shown on the detailed coloured sketch maps. The book is also illustrated with colour photographs.
