Tuesday's Thursday's and Sunday's are the regular walking days. Tuesday and Sunday walks are between 7.5 and 10 miles are generally graded between moderate and strenuous. Thursday walks are graded between easy and moderate and range between 5 and 7 miles. See our guide to walk grades. Please use your car if possible under normal circumstances to help with lifts for those who do not drive.
Under normal circumstances we meet at 9.15am for a 9:30am depart at Abbey Foregate car park on Sundays and at the back of the Park and Ride in Meole Brace on Tuesday's and Thursday's.
Suitable footwear and packed lunch are essential.
There are frequent short walks on Thursdays and occasional Saturday walks using buses.
In the Summer time there are Wednesday evening walks starting at 7:00 p.m. from various local pubs
Usually full cars are driven to the beginning of the walk by giving lifts and leaving some cars in Shrewsbury. Passengers make a contribution to the driver based on mileage.
Dogs ( except guide dogs) are not allowed on walks.
We have an 'Away Week' holiday in late Spring with daily walks in good walking territory. Also occasional coach trips.
