Originally conceived as a long distance walking path in 1980 a number of spurs were created over the years. Now the Shropshire Way Main Route has been waymarked to allow the original concept to reappear and is being promoted by the Shropshire Way Association.
The Shropshire Way will reveal to you some of England’s best kept secrets. You will discover the stark rocky crags of the Stiperstones with its unique landscape. You will walk over ancient hill forts, stay in mediaeval towns and villages, wander through beautiful woodland and then realise you don’t have to climb a mountain for a spectacular view as you reach the summits of the Clee Hills and the Wrekin.
