Due to national lockdowns in all UK nations, all GOC events are currently cancelled.
We look forward to being able to restart activities once local and national restrictions permit.
A circular walk along field paths and lanes in South Shropshire. Soon after setting off, we pass St Mary's Church and the medieval priory gatehouse (now a Landmark Trust holiday property). We then walk upstream, close to the River Teme as far as Downton Gorge with its ornate bridge and semi-circular weir (mesmerising when viewed from above!). We can enjoy broad views of the Clee Hills and the Long Mynd, once we leave the gorge. Total ascent: 124 metres. Social distancing will be possible throughout this walk.
Terrain / Difficulty
An easy walk using public footpaths (some stiles) and quiet country lanes. Only one steepish incline, as we leave the river. May be muddy in a couple of places after recent rainfall. This is Autumn, after all!
