Buzzard on named black discsShropshire Way


The Shropshire Way is now a collection of 27 shorter routes. The routes can be joined together to make long circular or extended linear routes with a number of link routes and short spurs.

The original Shropshire Way was a varied route crossing lowland farmland and many of the notable hills of Shropshire. It passed through Shrewsbury, Clun and Ludlow (the most southerly point), and on the return takes in the Clee Hills, Wenlock Edge, Ironbridge and the Wrekin. An 11 mile spur runs north from Wem to meet the Sandstone Trail, the Marches, Maelor and South Cheshire Ways at Grindley Brook.

The project to relaunch the route was co-ordinated by the Shropshire Way Liaison Group volunteers who steered the project from its inception and provided inspiration for the new routing, the circular walks and "my favourite walks".
