Easy walk mostly flat but not much to see, there are a few nice looking pubs along the way but I sadly picked the wrong one, The Black Swan Inn (very unwelcoming)

Nice trail, with lots of interesting things to see. There are loads of little trail off-shoots to keep it interesting if you do it regularly

excellent Mynd circuit

Took the dog and three kids under 8 (3yr old in a carrier). Easy route, not too muddy

Very nice and very easy walking. Lots of sheep. great view from the top.

Great walk with easy to follow markers and descriptive guidance. Some fields were quite over grown which made it a little challenging but at other times of the year I’m sure it’s easier! Thank you to whoever took the time to write the instructions!

I found this nice walk with some lovely views of the Shropshire Hills, some of the paths are over grown on the Shropshire Way so would do on a dry day or early spring,

Public footpath close to the Iron Bridge trail. Woodland route, good for kids to go off track to explore.

Great route. First couple fields were ploughed and furrowed very deep right to the edge so I had to backtrack and find another footpath to rejoin a little further on. But all good and the walk was very pleasant.

Excellent walk but some of the slopes you need to climb are definitely not easy. Would rank this as Moderate. We started and ended from Bishops Castle, which added an extra couple of miles to the walk. Lunch at the Powis Arms in Lidbury North is highly recommended!!

it's a bit of a pull on the legs and very steep in parts and the weather can change quicker than climbing Snowdonia however...the views are very much worth it and a favourite amongst locals and tourists alike

Great walk!

Fab walk loved it around the river. Still some ongoing work on the footbridge at the railway station so continue down the hill and left under the bridge and continue through the lights st railway station and your back on track again going up castle gates.

some minor changes to route around the station required due to ongoing work

This walk is right up there amongst the best I've done in the Midlands. The Fox pub is easy to find off the M54 and A41 and there's plenty of ample parking. The route itself is really easy to follow using the app, some really nice views. I don't always pop in for a drink after a walk but The Fox looks so inviting, a typical country pub in a lovely village. A very enjoyable short walk topped off in a lovely pub. 5 stars!

A lovely walk. Strenuous at the start as all up hill,but when you reach the top the views are spectacular. Instructions very clear. Start and finish at the Boyne Arms where a lovely pint and great food awaits you after your walk.

Lovely walk. Food at the pub is delightful. There are a few alternatives that mean you don�t need to walk on the road on the way back.

Very nice varied walk, ending with tour of hall gardens and sports facilities. Archery tournament was underway when we were there. Pete and Alicia, August 13th 2017

An excellent walk, full of interest. Only one unexpected problem encountered, part of the riverside walk was closed due to high water level. Found interesting diversion via Shrewsbury Abbey.

walk is well documented and the footpaths are well marked out going across the golf course which is always a bonus.

A guided walk needs one thing above all else - to be clear in the directions. This was certainly that as well as being an excellent and varied wander around Shrewsbury, the river being a dominant feature.
