Stage 14: Llanymynech to Nesscliffe

The Argae along the River Vyrnwy

The argae is a flood defence along quite a stretch of the River Vyrnwy as you walk this stage. A warning that in winter after heavy rainfall some areas can be flooded.

The unusual timber framed church of St Peter's at Melverley stands right on the river bank . The Shropshire Way joins the Severn Way here and leaves the village crossing a stile at the road. The lanes can be used as an alternative if the fields are wet. A short deviation to The Royal Hill pub is a pleasant location by the river to pause for refreshment.
