Walk 1 ‘Cross Offa’ Point 9 The bridge has been washed away but one can carefully cross the dried up or very small stream at present. We are working with Shropshire to find a solution, hopefully before winter! Between Points 27 and 34 quite a few of the stiles have been replaced by metal footpath gates by the volunteers.
Walk 3 ‘Rolling Marches’ Point 19 The stile footboard has collapsed please take care. Point 27 A new fence has been put in this field meaning there is further stile before you get to the gate in the corner of the field.
Walk 4 ‘Beneath the Ffridd’ Point 10 The grain silo has gone. Aim for grey barns instead. Point 11 The metal gate has gone and it is now just a gateway.
