Overview

Five mile ramble through beautiful woodlands to the top of Nesscliffe, with its stunning views towards the Breidden Hills and across Shropshire into Wales. The woods are full of interest, with the remains of an ancient fort and spectacular huge sandstone cliffs which give the village its name, in which is a hidden,  now not so secret, highwayman's cave. The walk will finish with a special  2 or 3 course special Xmas meal lunch at the Old Three Pigeons, an old coaching inn just off the what was the old A5.
