A circular pub walk from the Armoury in Shrewsbury, Shropshire. The Armoury sits in a magnificent brick building overlooking the River Severn and has an eclectic history of use including being (unsurprisingly!) an armoury, a convalescence home, a bakery and now a great town pub. The walking route explores some of the highlights within the historic market town of Shrewsbury, with something for everyone. You will be able to enjoy long stretches of the banks of the River Severn, the formal avenues within Quarry Park, the c 1070 red sandstone Shrewsbury Castle, the central shopping area and several beautiful historic buildings. The route follows pavements and tarmac paths in the main, but the first section through Poplar Island follows a grass path and this can get quite muddy in winter and after rain. If you don't have suitable footwear, this muddy section can be excluded and the walk shortened to 3 miles (simply follow the notes within the route description). The walk has a few gentle slopes throughout and includes a number of gates/kissing gates and some flights of steps, but no stiles. Allow 2 to 2.5 hours.Show more
