Welsh Bridge Shrewsbury

Stage 15: Nesscliffe to Shrewsbury

This final stage starts with an ascent of Nesscliffe Hill passing through the ramparts of another of Shropshire's ancient hill forts. A good view of the Welsh hills can be enjoyed from Oliver's Point at the top. A recent archeological dig here has finished and shows the entrance to the fort through the ramparts. After the descent a short detour will take you to Kynaston's cave, the home of a Shropshire Highwayman in times past.

The route joins the Severn Way for the walk through Montford Bridge and will take you right to the heart of the town whilst remaining on river meadows.

Flood warning after Montford Bridge: During the winter a detour is recommended. From SJ441153 continue on a farm track directly East for 400m to a lane at Bicton Farm. Here turn right to rejoin the Shropshire Way at SJ446152.

You are strongly advised to take an OS map and/or a GPS to walk the route. Please note the digital OS maps will show the new Main Route from January 2019.
