Sunday 26th January 2020 - Loggerheads

    The route follows the Shropshire, Staffordshire border south from Loggerheads through this complex of quiet hills, woodlands and pools which are the geological tail of the Pennine chain. Once part of the Great Forest of Blore which extended over several thousand acres, this area of high ground drains west into the Tern then to the Severn and east into the Sow and on to the Trent. On reaching Croxton the route heads back north to Ashley and the start. The recce of the route surprised us, it's a tranquil, scenic area with views over both Shropshire and west Staffordshire, a forgotten corner of England.
