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 provided at Clun.
SCRAMBLE - 13 miles
This hill walk leaves Bishop's Castle, to climb up to Offa's Dyke from Mainstone, then 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 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, notably the Walcot Estate, is not normally open to the public. It is however, particularly safe in that it provides clear signage, written instructions and helpful marshalls.
All proceeds from the walk will go to Bloodwise, the new name for Leukaemia & Lymphoma Research. We're the UK’s specialist blood cancer charity and we've been working to beat blood cancer since 1960. We fund world-class research; provide practical and emotional support to patients and their loved ones; and raise awareness of blood cancer. We stop people dying from blood cancer, we make patients’ lives better, and we look for ways to stop blood cancer happening in the first place. By taking part in this event you’ll be helping us to fund our ground-breaking research. For more information about us please click here.
