Walks around Shrewsbury

As the largest inland county in England and one of the last remaining rural idylls, it won't come as a surprise to find that Shropshire has more than its fair share of walks.  As Shropshire's county town there are plenty of walks in and around Shrewsbury; some easy, short or circular routes, others forming part of premier long distance paths (The Shropshire Way). Many of our Shrewsbury walks conveniently start or finish by car parks, reducing the effort required to enjoy the views!  Many also start and finish by pubs for the same reason!  With so many Shrewsbury walks to suit your mood, or indeed your sense of direction, there can be no better way to see Shropshire's unspoilt scenery.
