Gill Pursey will be leading the walk on Sunday 20 September as part of the Shropshire Way Festival of Walks which will showcase our county's long distance path and celebrate the scenic and diverse landscape it passes through. Details as follows:

Meet:  09.00 The Knolls car park, Stiperstones (GR SO 369976). Take the road out of town past the schools and Nuffield Hospital to Hookagate, on to Longden and Pulverbatch. Do not turn left to the pub at Bridges but 100 metres further turn right towards the Stiperstones. The Knolls car park is on the right at the top of the hill.

Route:  Grade C, 11 mile scenic circular route using the Shropshire Way through Nipstone Nature Reserve, deviating from it to go up and over Black Rhadley hill, then rejoining the Way at Ridge, up Linley Hill and down through Linley Beeches. Leaving the Way the return to the start point goes via the pretty village of Norbury and on to Birchope and Kinnerton Green. One short steep ascent, others more gradual. Lovely views in good weather.
