Hill Walking in Shropshire

Hill Walking in Shropshire

by: John Gillham
A year-round walking destination, Shropshire offers countless delights, from picturesque landscapes that change with the seasons to ancient remnants dotted across the countryside; Neolithic standing stones, Bronze /age stone circles, and hilltop forts dating back to the Iron Age. Highlights include Caer Caradoc, the Wrekin Hillfort, Castle Ring and Bury Ditches.

This guidebook describes 32 walks in the hills of Shropshire. The walks, which are graded easy, moderate or hard, range from 3 miles to 12 miles and can be walked in all seasons. To the south and west of the county is an area of fine but little-known hills designated the 'Shropshire Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty'. Most but not all of the walks in this guide are here. The selected routes take in highlights such as The Wrekin, Wenlock Edge, Long Mynd and Stiperstones, Castle Ring and Bury Ditches.

Featuring 1:50,000 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. The book is also profusely illustrated with colour photographs.
