Best Shropshire Walks

Best Shropshire Walks

by: Les Lumsdon
From wild hills to the gentlest woods and riversides, this book will show you the cream of Shropshire walking. This new edition of a much loved guide contains 36 tried and tested walks located in all parts of the county. Including a good range of gentle, moderate and strenuous walks the book provides something for everyone. Several walks feature fine hill walking on the Welsh borderlands, including stretches along Offa's Dyke, The Long Mynd and Caer Caradoc. Others start from delightful villages and hamlets and several rail rambles are included.
The Shropshire countryside really comes alive in this well-researched book. All of the walks include stories about the locality: folklore and legends, attractions and facilities. There are clear sketch maps and a selection of black and white photographs to make for an enjoyable and informative read. Essential practical information is provided at the beginning of each walk for easy reference. This includes distance, time, OS map sheet numbers, public transport, getting to the start by car and parking, and any refreshment facilities. There are several linear walks and these give details of return to the start by bus or train.
