Come and walk in our beautiful rolling Shropshire hills and raise money for blood cancer research.

“A great route and a great cause”

This circular Ramble (23 miles) runs between Bishops Castle and Clun, taking in Bury Ditches, the Walcot Estate and bits of the Shropshire Way and Offa’s Dyke. It divides into a fairly gentle Amble (10 miles), more challenging Scramble (13 miles) and shorter distances if you choose.

We mark the routes thoroughly with arrows, and send detailed maps with full directions in roughly 3-mile sections to your email address: “the best marked route, by far, we have ever been on”.

Enter here by donating £10 per person to Blood Cancer UK then contacting jeanshirley@btinternet.com for your pack and further information.

Apply between March 1 and May 16. After that, you decide when to walk between May 17 – 30, on which route or routes and with whom.

You provide your own refreshments and, most importantly, are responsible for your own safety.

Our first aim is for you to enjoy the walking and the scenery. If you feel able to get sponsorship for Blood Cancer UK, that achieves our second aim to help beat blood cancer, and makes us very happy. Please give your friends the following link. FACEBOOK
