Overview

This walk involves two ascents up towards Breidden Hill and then the lower peak of Middletown Hill with far reaching views across both Wales and Shropshire. (There is an option for those who feel up to it, to go up to the summits and return while we get our breath back ). Crossing the English/Welsh border, we continue to the smaller hills: Kempster`s and Bausley, which will be our scenic lunch stop.

A varied walk which includes  a Hill Fort, streams and a Waterfall. There are a few tricky paths and it may be quite muddy in parts, so good boots are essential and bring poles if you need them.
