The Wenlock Walks are five short circular walks which start at the clock tower in Much Wenlock square, opposite the Guildhall and the museum. None of them is more than 5km, and each one can be walked in two hours or less.
Each walk takes you out of the town and into our glorious countryside. They can get muddy so you’ll need strong shoes, but once you’ve walked all these you’ll want to walk some more!
The walks are the result of three years hard work by the Wenlock Footpaths Group volunteers, working in conjunction with Shropshire Council and Shropshire Hills AONB Partnership. More ShropshiresWalks can be found at www.shropshirewalking.co.uk
Please download PDF versions of each walk from the links below.
You can also obtain a pocket-sized booklet containing the maps and useful background information from Much Wenlock Visitor Information.
