Signed walks around the Oswestry hills with tea & cake

Explore the beautiful border country of the Oswestry hills between Shropshire Wildlife Trust’s seven nature reserves in the area.

Walkers can choose a signed route of 7 or 14 miles or a guided 2-mile walk. The signed routes are easy to follow with arrows to keep you on track and you can start at a time of your choosing, within the registration periods set out below.

The 2-mile route guided walk will be led by Gareth Egarr, the Trust’s reserves officer. This is a chance to see and learn about the butterflies and wildflowers in this special area.

The routes follow public rights of way across rolling farmlandWalkers on the Seven wonders of the Oswestry hills between woods, fen, fields and common land, enjoying spectacular views and scenery. Delicious home-made cakes and tea are included in the entry fee. A minibus will transport those walking the 7 mile route back to the start.

To protect nesting birds please keep all dogs on leads.

Entrance fee is £10 for all walks. This is a fund-raising event and all profits will be spent on Shropshire Wildlife Trust’s nature reserves in the local area.
