Bishop’s Castle Round and About Walks
Ramble, amble or scramble around the beautiful Shropshire Hills and help us beat blood cancer
Round and About Walks offer adventurous types the chance to ramble, amble or scramble through the Shropshire countryside. Participants can choose from three distinct routes and distances, catering for a wide range of abilities and experience.
Ramble, scramble or amble
Ramble and Scramble start between 08.30am and 10am and the Amble starts between 1pm and 2pm.
Ramble – 23 miles
This beautiful circular walk rambles over the rolling Shropshire hills from and back to Bishops Castle, via Offa’s Dyke, the Shropshire Way, the Walcot Estate and Bury Ditches, with a welcome hot vegetarian lunch provided at Clun.
Scramble – 13 miles
This hill walk leaves Bishops Castle, to climb up to Offa’s Dyke from Mainstone, and enjoys views along the Cefns before dropping down to Clun, past its castle, for lunch and transport back to Bishops Castle.
Amble – 10 miles
Transport is provided to Clun for lunch, before an undulating stroll to Bury Ditches, then through the normally private Walcot Estate, and Oakley Mynd, to Bishops Castle.
The Scramble and Amble follow the same route as the Ramble, which crosses quite remote countryside, some of which is not normally open to the public. It is, however, particularly safe in that we provide clear signage, written instructions and helpful marshals.
Written instructions, refreshments, lunch, transport as needed, and a certificate are all provided.
Please note that we are unable to allow dogs on this walk. This is mostly due to the walk being entirely on agricultural land.
