Route Outline

This circular walk from Newcastle on Clun explores a beautiful part of Shropshire with rolling hills using the Offa's Dyke Path and the Shropshire Way. The walk does also involve some quiet country lanes although traffic levels are very low in this quiet part of England. What is remarkable is how much evidence of the dyke remains despite many centuries passing since its construction.
