Five new circular walks around Much Wenlock have been established and launched this summer, including one which has been named after Wenlock’s most famous son. The walks were planned by the local Much Wenlock Walking Group; paths have been cleared and new gates, signposts and way markers have been installed, to make the routes as easily accessible as possible. Details of the new walks are available to download at www.shropshirewalking.co.uk and a new guide will be available at the Tourist Information Centre.
