Local walks for July and August


Summer is the time our Shropshire hills, lanes and valleys are arguably at their best. Make the most of the sunshine by joining one of our local walking groups; you could learn more about butterflies, explore some of Shropshire’s breweries, or traverse an ancient Welsh border.

Walk information is correct at press time but always call beforehand to ensure walks are going ahead and to check times. Wear weather-appropriate clothing and footwear and carry water and, if required, a snack/lunch.
