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, Walcot Estate and Bury Ditches, with a welcome hot vegetarian lunch at Clun.
Scramble – 13 miles
This hill walk leaves Bishop’s 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 Bishop’s Castle.
Amble – 9.5 miles
Transport is provided from Bishop’s Castle to Clun for lunch, before an undulating stroll to Bury Ditches, then through the Walcot Estate and over Oakeley Mynd to Bishop’s Castle.
SCRAMBLE and AMBLE follow the same route as RAMBLE, which crosses remote countryside, some of which is not normally open to the public. It is quite safe, as we provide clear signage, written instructions and helpful marshals.
Entry fee online £18 (£19 by post) to include instructions, refreshments, lunch, transport as needed, and a certificate. All proceeds go to Bloodwise.
THE CLOSING DATE FOR APPLICATIONS IS MONDAY MAY 7

After a mammoth solo world tour promoting the release of the critically acclaimed ‘Verging On The Perpendicular’ album, BBC Folk Award nominee Dan Walsh’s annual UK tour offers an exciting change for 2018 seeing the launch of the all-new Dan Walsh Trio. This exciting new outfit sees him team up with award winning fiddler Ciaran Algar and long-time collaborator Nic Zuppardi on mandolin. Although a few favourites from Dan’s previous highly praised albums will be in the set, the gigs are mostly to be shaped around brand new and innovative material. At the heart of the trio’s sound is British, Irish and American folk music delivered with a healthy dose of funky grooves. Add to all that poignant songs, astonishing musical departures and lively humour and the result is sure to be a truly memorable live show featuring three of the most in demand musicians on the folk scene today. www.danwalshbanjo.co.uk Photo Credit Kate Gallow
