 Shropshire Walks

Shropshire is the largest county in England not to have a coastline with an area of 1,346 square miles, also sometimes called Salop.

Geologically, the county is very varied with flat plains in the north and the Shropshire Hills in the south, which are an Area of Outstanding National Beauty and cover around 23% of the county.

Shropshire is an important agricultural area but has significant industrial roots, being the birthplace of the Industrial Revolution at Coalbrookdale and Ironbridge, where the world’s first iron bridge was erected over the River Severn in 1779.

Generally, Shropshire is quiet, with a relatively small population. There are no cities and most of the towns are quite small with a good supply of independent shops. As a county which borders Wales, historically it was on something of a front line and castles and hill forts abound.

Footpaths are everywhere and there are walks to suit all ages and abilities. My walks are all located in the Shropshire Hills which vary from heather covered moorland to limestone scenery.

If you need somewhere to stay for a trip to Shropshire, check out "walker friendly" accommodation
