The Shropshire Way, - ‘The Final Leg’ -  Tuesday 24th October - 10 miles

 

Like our walks along the Worcestershire Way and the North Worcestershire Path these linear walks have not been reccied but should be well way marked. See web site www.shropshiregreatoutdoors.co.uk.

 

The eighth and final leg of our walk is from Wilderhope Manor perched high on top of Wenlock Edge to Church Stretton. The first half of the walk (five miles) follows the top of Wenlock Edge before descending towards Acton Scott. The final section then takes us over Ragleth hill which presents us with a steep climb of about 500ft about a mile from our finishing line in Church Stretton, so it’s probably a good aspect that the morning walk along the Edge has very little ascent to challenge us! As usual we will use the services of M & J Travel who should pick us up in Church Stretton at 9.45am and take us to the start of the walk at Wilderhope Manor. For those of you who have looked at the above web site this is route number 7, but does not feature on my ‘Explorer’ map as the ‘Shropshire Way’ but mostly as the ‘Marches Way’. It is a good job that the County Council are in the process of clarifying the ‘official’ route, which proved so much better on our last leg to Wilderhope.

 

Please assemble at Crabbs Cross car park for departure at 8.00am. I have not yet booked an evening meal but if members agree I think this last leg ought to conclude with a little more than a visit to Wetherspoons, I will endeavour to seek opinions prior to our walk.

 

Many thanks,

 

Tony Dixon.
