Where there are hills, there are valleys, and the Border counties have plenty to explore. These walks, taking in woodland, rivers and flower-filled meadows, each offer something different
Every valley is different. If you give it your full attention, you can always find something unique. It can be anything from a charming pub or village in a large river valley, to a carpet of wildflowers in a ‘neglected’ meadow. Perhaps, in a smaller vale, you might uncover a waterfall that few venture to, or even a perfect picnic spot you can enjoy all to yourself.
These walks are all long enough for you to spend a whole day getting to know the nature of each valley – its shape, its character, its wildlife.
ROUTE 1 – Over hills and streams in the Shropshire countryside
ROUTE 2 – Through trees and fields in rural Powys
ROUTE 3 – Hug the Clywedog River on a trail created as a gift
