Getting There

A circular walk from the Inn at Shipley in Shipley, Shropshire. The Inn at Shipley was opened in December 2013 and is an impressive red brick building with lovely beams and plenty of nooks and crannies inside. The walking route explores the surrounding lanes and farmland, passing the beautiful early 17th century Ludstone Hall along the way. The route includes a few gentle climbs and descents throughout. The first 100 yards of the walk passes down a farm track which is part of a dairy farm and so can be very muddy at any time of the year- good waterproof boots are a must. The paths are not particularly well-walked and so can be a little overgrown in the summer. There are a few sections of road walking and you will need to cross a couple of busy road junctions so take care of traffic at these points. You will need to negotiate four stiles which are very tall and could prove difficult for the less agile! There are gaps alongside the stiles which should be suitable for most dogs to pass through. One field you cross may be holding cattle so take care with dogs.

Shipley (in Shropshire) is located on the A454 between Wolverhampton and Bridgnorth. The walk starts and finishes from the Inn at Shipley which is on the A454 Bridgnorth Road and has its own car park. Approximate post code WV6 7EQ.

Very pleasant walk, followed by good pub lunch. The two stiles mentioned in section three have been replaced by gates.

First to Review

Nice walk, through sine quiet lanes but intersected by some busy noisy roads. A nice Sunday Lunch at the Ship Inn would round it off nicely......
