Getting There

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.

Chetwynd Aston is a small village located between Telford and Newport in Shropshire. The walk starts and finishes at the Fox pub which is on Pave Lane and has its own large car park. Approximate post code TF10 9LQ.

Mainly flat walk with just a few rather unnoticeable inclines. Great little walk to get the appetite ready for a good meal and great pint at the Fox.

First to Review

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!
