Shrewsbury to Wem 12 miles

or to Whitchurch 28 miles

Leaving Shrewsbury Station forecourt at 8.00am on Wednesday 25th September and returning by train from either finishing point.

Those living in North Shropshire can arrive at Shrewsbury by train and walk home.

The route will follow the Shropshire Way to Wem where Roger will provide light refreshments.

We will then deviate from the rather overgrown field route to pick up the Ellesmere Canal for most of the way to Whitchurch.
