Welcome to Shropshire Area Ramblers

The Ramblers is dedicated to protecting footpaths and other places to which the public has a right of way or access on foot, defending the beauty of the countryside and promoting walking for all.

The Ramblers in the UK (England, Scotland, and Wales) has more than 120,000 members in about 50 Areas and over 500 local groups.

The Ramblers in Shropshire campaign to protect and improve our footpaths within Shropshire and Telford and Wrekin.

Shropshire is a beautiful county. It is famous for the high moorland of the Long Mynd, the long wooded scarp of Wenlock Edge, the historic Severn Gorge at Ironbridge (the birthplace of the Industrial Revolution), the ancient rocky spine of the Stiperstones, and the Wrekin, the isolated hill which indicates 'home' to so many Shropshire people.

But, there are many lesser known areas which provide equally stunning countryside to enjoy.

There is so much space for everyone. Fine weekends bring the crowds to Ironbridge and the Carding Mill Valley in the Long Mynd, but just a short distance away you can be alone and quite possibly not see anyone at all. The downside to the quiet and emptiness of the countryside is that paths are not heavily used and can make navigation not so straightforward.

Walking in Shropshire is rewarding for all ages and abilities as it is so diverse in geography and geology and has such a rich history. We are lucky to be able to compile a programme of very varied walks either around the wonderful Shropshire Hills, the more northerly Shropshire Plain or for more challenging terrain, the Welsh Borders.

If you are new to Shropshire, or a visitor, looking for a walk in the area, choose a walk from our one of our groups programmes and come along to the meeting point - you will get a warm welcome.
