Sunday 19th March 2017 - Leintwardine and Downton

   Bernard 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.

   The route 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.
