Overview

'Bishop’s Castle and Clun are excellent centres for exploring the unspoilt hill country of the area – most of it in the Shropshire Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Well way marked paths go through many of the hillside and valley villages of the Rivers Clun and Upper Onny, making walking straight from the towns and villages a real pleasure. Both towns are on Shropshire Way, a short distance from the Offa’s Dyke Path, a national trail, and near the pre-bronze age Kerry Ridgeway.'

None of them is more than 5km, and each one can be walked in two hours or less. Each walk takes you out of the town and into our glorious countryside. They can get muddy so you'll need strong shoes, but once you've walked all these you'll want to walk some more !' ALERT New Links provided.
