Notice: June 2020
Walkers please note that it is not always possible to walk Montgomery Trail number 2 as the substantial bridge on the footpath near Burnt House (Chirbury) was washed away by floods earlier in the year. Shropshire CC aim to remedy this soon but it is quite a big job. The walk can, however, be done during periods of dry weather as the stream is dry and the bridge not required to cross it.
Take a leisurely stroll around the medieval street layout of Montgomery to see the town’s architectural and historical heritage. Highlights include; the Georgian Town Hall, St Nicholas Church, The Old Goal, Arthur Street Cottages and the Georgian frontages in Broad Street.
