Car-free walks along The Shropshire Way

Nine walks along the Shropshire Way have been devised to link in with the local bus and train services that operate in the Shropshire Hills. With the exception of the Bromdon to Clee Hill walk, you catch the bus or train to the start point and enjoy the walk back at your own pace.

Walk the Shropshire Way you’ll see why the Shropshire Hills are designated as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB). The varied geology of this relatively small area (the AONB covers nearly a quarter of Shropshire) has created a diverse and contrasting landscape which is all the more obvious when following the Shropshire Way – the craggy ridge of the Stiperstones, the moorland plateau of the Long Mynd, the quarried Clee Hills and the rolling countryside of the Clun Forest all have their own character.

The AONB is a national designation which recognises the Shropshire Hills as one of Britain’s finest landscapes and aims to conserve and enhance the natural beauty of the landscape.
