Canal near Lower Frankton

North Route

The Northern section of the Shropshire Way provides a contrast to the Shropshire Hills and will take you to canals, meres and mosses. Here we have the Nature Reserve of the Shropshire Mosses, an important area for birdlife and rare plants.

This recent addition to the long distance path incorporates the option of a route to Whitchurch with the original link to the Sandstone Trail.

At Maesbury Marsh there is the opportunity to take a detour to the historic town of Oswestry and the magnificent hill fort on the outskirts.

Llanymynech is on the Welsh border where there is an interesting Hoffman lime kiln on the route.

Starting at Kingsland Bridge in Shrewsbury, the Haughmond to Shrewsbury link will take you back to the junction with the Southern loop from where you begin the northern section of 74 miles (excluding 14.5 Whitchurch Spur).
