OSWALD'S TRAIL - NEW TRAIL GUIDE.  Have you tried out this circular route around Oswestry?  It is a 13 mile or 11 mile circuit or can be done in sections.  We have (July 2019) produced a revised trail guide, including a shortcut along the railway from Wilfred Owen Green.  The guide is now available to download here and paper copies will be available in local libraries, TICs, community centres etc. 

Feedback to on your experience of the trail and guide.


Walk the Shropshire Way Official Guide by John Gillham, published by Cicerone is now available.

The whole of the new main route of the Shropshire Way is complete and waymarked with improved paths, stiles and gates. For more information and walks on the Shropshire Way see the website and newsletter (Jan 2020). Sorting out the route is a huge achievement and we are using it frequently for walks. There will be a Shropshire Way festival betweem 19th and 25th September 2020.
