What we're about
Upcoming events (5+)
5 miles: easy. A circular walk starting from Ford Parish Hall car park, walking from the church following historic green lanes and paths up on to the higher ground away from the Severn and looping back to Ford through Chavel. We walk along the path of an old railway, this was the Potts Line which ran from Shrewsbury to the Staffordshire potteres, and during WW2 it was used to carry munitions to the Army camp at Nesscliffe. We will follow a bridgleway to the Alberbury road and from here there is a good view of the Breiddens.
Hilary is kindly going to Host this walk for the group, thank you Hilary. Route: Starting from Sundorne Sports Village we will follow the old canal path to Uffington, then along the Shropshire Way and across to Haughmond Abbey. Having crossed onto Haughmond Hill we will stop for a break at the picnic area before following woodland paths to the viewing point where (hopefully) there will be fantastic views of hills, hills and more hills!!! A gradual descent will bring us back to our starting point. General info: Sundorne Sports Village ( SY1 4RQ ) has a large and free car park but it is likely to be busy on Sunday mornings. We will all meet at the entrance to the Sports Village building. Toilets at the start and at Haughmond Hill.
