Shropshire Outstanding Circular Walks Pathfinder Guidebook

Shropshire Outstanding Circular Walks Pathfinder Guidebook

authors: Dennis and Jan Kelsall
This Pathfinder guidebook provides 180 miles of stunning walking among A. E. Housman's 'Blue remembered hills' of the Shropshire Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Included are the Long Mynd, Stiperstones, and Caer Caradoc. There's also a climb to the top of The Wrekin. By way of contrast, walks visit the marshy meres of Brown and Whixall Moss, the World Heritage Sites at Chirk and Ironbridge, and trace Offa's Dyke from Knighton, Llanymynech and Oswestry. Shropshire truly provides countless opportunities to experience the very essence of England: a tangled web of history, heritage, tradition, and culture that is best explored along the tranquil countryside tracks, paths, and byways of this most endearing of counties.

In this Pathfinder guide clear and easy to follow directions are accompanied by detailed 1:25,000 scale maps from Ordnance Survey and specially commissioned photographs. With 28 colour-coded routes to choose from, all tried and tested by seasoned walkers and varying from extended strolls to exhilarating hikes, there is a walk to suit all situations. The guide introduces you to the area and highlights the most scenic walks. Details are included for useful organisations, refreshment stops, and places to leave your car. GPS waypoints are included.
