Shropshire Cakes and Ale Trail

177 km / 110 miles

Shrops
The Shropshire Cakes and Ale Trail is an enchanting seven-section walk through the glorious Shropshire countryside. Beginning in the Italianate hill-town of Bridgnorth, it takes walkers down the River Severn then across country to enter Cleobury Mortimer in the steps of the poet-postman, Simon Evans. Next it?s over Titterstone Clee and down to the gourmet town of Ludlow, before a fascinating journey via the Aldon Gutter and Bury Ditches hillfort to the ancient Saxon town of Clun.

A climb on to Offa?s Dyke leads to Bishop?s Castle with its two micro-breweries, then it?s up again over the mysterious Stiperstones and the sheep-grazing Long Mynd into the ?Little Switzerland? that is Church Stretton. Over Caer Caradoc and Wenlock Edge, walkers emerge into pretty Much Wenlock, before the final stretch through history to Bridgnorth.
