March 2017 - Leintwardine and Downton
devised this walk and should take the credit for it. Iím only
doing it because I havenít broken a bone in my ankle. The start
is at Leintwardine Community Village Hall car park (SO403741).
This is accessed by a steep drive just before the Community Library, on
the right, if youíre travelling from Shrewsbury.
follows the Herefordshire Trail out of Leintwardine, cutting through
Lawnwell Dingle. It turns south and southeast on paths and farm
tracks to Forge Cottage on the River Teme. Rejoining the
Herefordshire Trail the route goes through the grounds of Downton
Castle, over the Teme, to Burrington before turning west and back to
Leintwardine via Downton on the Rock.
