Shropshire - A Dog Walker's Guide

Shropshire - A Dog Walker's Guide

by: Judy Smith
On a fine day there is nothing quite so enjoyable for dog owners than getting out into the countryside with your pet for a leisurely walk. Once you get off your home patch though, it is hard to know where you can walk safely with your dog and which pubs and cafes will welcome you both.

Here is a collection of 20 circular walks, varying in length between 2 and 7 miles, in the beautiful countryside of Shropshire. The walks have been designed with maximum off-lead time and minimum exposure to roads. There are walks beside the beautiful Llangollen Canal and the shores of Blake Mere at Ellesmere; over Nesscliffe Hill with its magnificent woods and open heathland; along the craggy ridge of the Stiperstones; through Sowdley Wood in the valley of the Clun; around the Severn Valley Country Park at Highley; and up that sturdy sentinel of Shropshire, the Wrekin, with its breath-taking views.

All the walks include details of how to get to the start; distance and terrain, dog factors such as livestock and stiles, recommended dog-friendly refreshment stops, numbered route directions plus clear sketch maps, points of interest along the way and nearest veterinary practice. There are numerous colour photographs.
