The walks in this book have been chosen with the aim of exploring South Shropshire’s past, with each walk passing or visiting features about which some background information is given. These include churches, chapels, castles and castle sites, dykes, tumuli, stone circles, hillforts, sites of deserted villages, medieval houses, stately homes, drovers’ roads, inns, mills, the Severn Valley Railway and industrial remains. Some of the sites can only be reached on foot. The walks have also been chosen to provide routes in a range of country-side. Some walks follow river valleys whilst others clamber to the tops of the highest hills to view prehistoric sites and remains of industrial working, but many more wander through and across the rolling hills. Some include a partial exploration of the area’s towns. The walks range from 3½ to 9½ miles in length, with the majority being between 4 and 7½ miles. Each walk has a sketch map and detailed directions, together with background information about features en route. Not only is this a book of walks, but also a companion to and celebration of South Shropshire.
