All The Way Round The Wrekin (Not Up It)

Buckatree Hall Hotel

This is a 6 mile walk round the base of The Wrekin starting at The Buckatree Hall Hotel. This is a reasonably easy walk through the woods. It is an undulating path but nothing serious hill wise. There may be some mud in places so good footwear needed. At the end of the walk we can get a drink at the Buckatree Hall Hotel

Walking and Wellbeing, An Evening With A Chiropractor.

Needs a location

This is an evening devoted to discovering what is involved in using the skills of a chiropractor to eleviate injuries and pains due to walking and other day to day routines. Hayley White BSc (Hons) is a Doctor of Chiropractic and has given up one of her evenings to do this for us. She will give a short talk on how it all works and will then be available for Q & A. Tea and Coffee and Toilets will be available. The venue is the Business Development Centre, Stafford Park 4, Telford, TF3 3BA.

Summit Sunrise At Pole Bank On The Longmynd

War Memorial

This is a 6 mile circular walk up to Pole Bank on the Longmynd to watch the sunrise at 08.11 (Weather permitting) The whole walk will be weather permitting but hopefully we will be lucky. After the walk we can get a drink or breakfast at Berry's or The HollyBush cafe in the town...should be back in town by about 09.45 so you will have the rest of the day free......Head torches will be required. Parking should be easy as most of Church Stretton will still be asleep when we start.

Ascending The Steep Side Of The Stiperstones

The Bog Visitor Centre

This is a walk starting at The Bog Car Park. We walk along the bottom of The Stiperstones along country trails eventually arriving in Stiperstones Village. From there we ascend a very steep hill onto the top of The Stiperstones. We then walk through Brook Vessons Nature Reserve and onto the main part of The Stiperstones. We then cross the Stiperstones and walk back down to the car park. The first half of the walk is relatively easy but the second half you will need plenty of stamina and a spare pair of lungs to ascend the hill, well worth it for the climb and the views. You will need good footwear for this walk.....
