Length: 4.2 mi • Est. 2 h 5 m
A circular pub walk from the Fox in Chetwynd Aston, Shropshire. The Fox is a lovely big Edwardian-style pub all wrapped around a busy bar, with a large south-facing terrace to enjoy in the summer months. The walking route explores the surrounding gently rolling countryside following tracks and paths through arable farmland and woodland, a peaceful journey with lovely views throughout. The walk has several gentle climbs and descents and there are no stiles on route, just one single gate. The paths are wide and well-made for the most part, but a few sections pass along the edge of fields and these paths can be quite muddy in winter and after periods of rain so good boots are recommended. The footpaths are not particularly well signed, so be sure to follow the directions carefully to ensure you stay on the public rights of way. Approximate time 1.5 to 2 hours. Show more

As this site is a designated National Sports Centre, DOGS are currently NOT ALLOWED in the grounds or gardens of Lilleshall. A circular walk around the beautiful gardens and grounds of Lilleshall National Sports and Conferencing Centre near Telford in Shropshire. Set in spectacular and secluded surroundings, Lilleshall is one of the UK's National Sports Centres, training grounds and centres of excellence for the country's leading sportsmen and women. Originally built as a country house and hunting lodge for the Duke of Sutherland, you will have chance to discover Lilleshall's many gems including the Italian water garden, the pet cemetery and the world-class sport facilities. The walk includes just a couple of gentle slopes and you will also need to negotiate a couple of gates plus several flights of steps. The majority of the route follows surfaced paths, but the parts through the wild sections of meadow can get a little muddy at times. There is a cafe bar, Queens Bar, at the start of the route to allow you to enjoy refreshments before or after your walk. Please note that dogs are NOT allowed in the grounds. You are likely to come across free roaming peacocks within the grounds. Approximate time 1 hour.Show more

NOTE: This walk is currently closed because it intersects with an archery shooting range on property. As this site is a designated National Sports Centre, DOGS are currently NOT ALLOWED in the grounds or gardens of Lilleshall. A circular walk around the beautiful gardens and grounds of Lilleshall National Sports and Conferencing Centre near Telford in Shropshire. Set in spectacular and secluded surroundings, Lilleshall is one of the UK's National Sports Centres, training grounds and centres of excellence for the country's leading sportsmen and women. This route gives you chance to test your fitness, taking you through the woodland belts alongside the estate's 2 mile sweeping drive, before returning (a steady climb all the way!) to explore the heart of the estate. You will have chance to discover Lilleshall's many gems including the golden gates (an exact replica of those at Buckingham Palace), the Italian water garden, the pet cemetery and the world-class sport facilities. The walk includes one long, steady descent and the equivalent ascent and you will also need to negotiate a couple of gates plus several flights of steps. The route follows a mixture of garden surfaced paths and un-made woodland and meadow paths, the latter of which can be uneven underfoot and very muddy at times. One section of the route follows a quiet country lane, so take care of any occasional traffic here. There is a cafe bar, Queens Bar, at the start of the route to allow you to enjoy refreshments before or after your walk. Please note that dogs are NOT allowed in the grounds. You are likely to come across free roaming peacocks within the grounds. Approximate time 3 hours.Show more
