Hello and Welcome to Shropshire Area Ramblers!

Shropshire is a beautiful rural county. It is famous for the high moorland of the Long Mynd, the long wooded scarp of Wenlock Edge, the historic Severn Gorge at Ironbridge (birthplace of the Industrial Revolution), the ancient rocky spine of the Stiperstones, and the Wrekin; the isolated hill which forms the gateway to the Shropshire Hills...an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty!

There is so much space for everyone. Fine weekends bring the crowds to Ironbridge and the Carding Mill Valley in the Long Mynd, but just a short distance away you can find solitude.

What We Do

Protect and Maintain our Rights of Way

As Ramblers we campaign to protect and improve our footpaths within Shropshire and Telford and Wrekin. Groups carry out vital maintenance work to ensure paths stay open and accessible for everyone.

Run Group Walks and Events

Walking in Shropshire is rewarding for all ages and abilities as it is so diverse in geography and geology and has such a rich history. We are lucky to be able to compile a programme of very varied walks either around the wonderful Shropshire Hills, the more northerly Shropshire Plain or for more challenging terrain, the Welsh Borders and the rugged Snowdonia National Park. 

Our groups also organise weekends away, including to the Welsh Coast and the Lake Distict.

And social events, such as pub meals, camping and canoeing to name just a few!

If you are new to Shropshire or a visitor looking for a walk in the area, feel free to choose a walk from one of our groups programmes...you'll receive a very warm welcome!
