The Association was formally constituted in June 2016 and became a Registered Charity in June 2021. Its aims are to maintain, preserve and promote the Shropshire Way Main Route as a long distance path. See our About page for more information.

The Path

The Shropshire Way Main Route is a long distance path of some 200 miles, covering not only the wonderful Shropshire Hills in the South but also some of the historic towns and unique natural features in the North of the county.

The Southern Main Route of the Shropshire Way follows much of the original path as conceived by Ramblers in 1980. For more historical details see our History. The path links Shrewsbury with the historic towns and villages of Bishop's Castle, Clun, Ludlow, Much Wenlock, Ironbridge and Wellington.

Walking the Shropshire Way will reveal to you some of England’s best kept secrets. You will discover the stark rocky crags of the Stiperstones with its unique landscape. You will walk over ancient hill forts, stay in Mediaeval towns and villages, wander through beautiful woodland and then realise you don’t have to climb a mountain for a spectacular view as you reach the summits of the Clee Hills and the Wrekin.

Much Wenlock is the birth place of the Olympic Games and the Ironbridge Gorge gave rise to the Industrial Revolution. The museums here are worth an extended stop-over.

Whether it’s a short break or a walking holiday Shropshire is a treasure chest of interest and delight.
