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 – 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.
Register online or via postal entry. After 1 April, all entry fees rise to £20.
By taking part in this event, you’ll help us fund our ground-breaking research which has made such a difference to blood cancer.
Mr. and Mrs. Anthony Lyle Skyrme will host a garden event at their home, Broadward Hall, Clungunford, in aid of The Conservation Trust for St. Laurence, Ludlow.
There will be three Speakers Professor Michael Robinson, his wife Dr. Ann Robinson and Mike Kelly.
Over a period of some 20 years, the Robinsons created and nurtured a wild flower meadow at their home at Northridge Meadows in Monmouthshire. The talk will be illustrated with photographs from Northridge Meadows – a registered Wildlife Site.
Mike Kelly is a Natural Environmental Officer with the Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty team in Craven Arms. One of his interests is the River Clun, one of only three rivers in England designated to be a ‘Site of Special Scientific Interest’, as is the Broadward Estate itself. The River Clun runs through the Broadward Estate and is home to rare and vulnerable wildlife, such as otters, water voles, kingfishers, dippers, white-clawed crayfish and freshwater pearl mussels. Following his talk, Mike will guide a walk along the river bank for those wishing to join him.
The ticket price of £20 per person includes a cream tea, plant stall and book sale. To save costs, tickets will not be issued. Attendees will be contacted by email or phone by way of confirmation.
