Shropshire Way Association (SWA)

The Association was formed 2016 and became a Charitable Trust in January 2020. Its aims are to maintain, preserve and promote the Shropshire Way Main Route as a long distance path. SWA has been working with Shropshire Council to define a Main Route as distinct from the many circular routes that had been developed during recent years.

The Main Route was completed in 2018 but work is continuing to ensure that this is well maintained and promoted as a major attraction for walkers.

The Association is run by a dedicated team of volunteers with practical help from Shropshire Council Outdoor Partnership Team and local P3 groups.

Financial support has been received from Ramblers Holidays Charitable Trust and anonymous donors.


Development of the website is continuous. The route definition is complete with a page for each stage and downloads of maps, .gpx files and points of interest. Temporary changes will be posted on these pages.

Pages for accommodaton and public transport links have been added. We aim to add more information to help walkers with holiday planning and bagge carrying.

Here is a shortened version of the presentation given at the Wellington Walking Festival. The event was used to launch the southern section of the Shropshire Way Main Route and the presentation includes some history of the path and its re-establishment. Click on the book.
