Explorer WALX are simply sociable Nordic walks in a mixed ability group, enjoying beautiful locations in and around Shropshire. Most routes are circular and will try to make the most of our surroundings.
This is a super walk across high-level moorland at the North West of the Long Mynd area, with extensive views, providing great mental health benefits. As the cars do the climbing for us, the walk itself is relatively easy. The beauty of this walk is that the main, circular, part of the walk is relatively level, and suitable for all. The second part of the walk is there and back along the lane, including some gentle hillwork, down to Wildmoor Pool and back. If you only want to do the first part of the walk, this can be easily accommodated.
No stiles. Please note that whilst this is a super location, owing to the nature of the landscape, it is quite an exposed area, so is likely to be colder and windier than other walks. It can also be more prone to hill fog and mist. Please ensure that you are prepared for the conditions, with extra layers, and something to aid your visibility would be helpful too.
A gears 1 and 2 walk.
No cafe or toilets. Nearest will be at The Pound Inn in Leebotwood, or The Yew Tree in All Stretton (subject to opening hours), or at Carding Mill Valley, or in the town in Church Stretton.
Dress to suit the weather, with sun protection, if appropriate. Please bring water too.
Photos may be taken during the walk for use on the WALX in the Marches website, on social media, and occasionally, shared more widely with WALX/Nordic Walking UK. If you are not happy for your image to be used in any of these ways, please let me know.
