Buzzard on named orange discsShropshire Way

195 km / 121 miles

Shropshire
The route has been redesigned to form two loops starting from Shrewsbury, the county town of Shropshire. The hilly southern loop takes in the historic towns and villages of Bishop's Castle, Clun, Ludlow, Much Wenlock, Ironbridge and Wellington. The northern route passes through Wem, Ellesmere and Llanymynech on the Welsh border. An extension to Whitchurch provides a link into the Sandstone Trail.
The southern loop is fully waymarked and described on the dedicated Shropshire Way website. Work is progressing on the northern loop (2018).

OS maps will be updated with the new routes once both sections have been completed.

The Shropshire's Great Outdoors website provides information on a series of linear and circular walks formerly known as the Shropshire Way and waymarked with the old black and white buzzard waymark.
