BISHOP’S CASTLE ROUND and ABOUT WALKS 2017

Ramble, Amble or Scramble

SATURDAY MAY 6

Ramble – 22.5 miles This beautiful circular walk rambles over the rolling Shropshire hills from and back to Bishop’s Castle, via Offa’s Dyke, Shropshire Way, the Walcot Estate and Bury Ditches, with a welcome hot vegetarian lunch at Clun

Scramble – 13 miles This hill walk leaves Bishop’s Castle, to climb up to Offa’s Dyke from Mainstone, enjoying views along the Cefns before dropping down past its castle to Clun, for lunch and transport back to Bishop’s Castle

Amble – 9.5 miles Transport is provided from Bishops Castle to Clun for lunch, before an undulating stroll to Bury Ditches, then through the normally private Walcot Estate, and Oakeley Mynd, to Bishop’s Castle.

 

The route crosses quite remote countryside some of which is not normally open to the public. But don’t worry about getting lost! We provide clear signage, written instructions and helpful marshals.

 

Local hostelries offer discounts to walkers.

Online entry has opened. The entrance fee for ALL walkers applying electronically is £18, which includes instructions, refreshments, lunch, transport as needed, and a certificate. All proceeds go to Bloodwise (formerly Leukaemia and Lymphoma Research).
