The Herefordshire Trail is a long distance path using existing public rights of way to give a circular tour around our county.

It links the five market towns of Ledbury, Ross-on-Wye, Kington, Leominster and Bromyard, along with some of the picturesque villages and hamlets for which Herefordshire is renowned.  Routes are detailed here.

Wenlock Edge is a wonderful limestone escarpment running from Craven Arms to Ironbridge.


Long Mynd

At the heart of the Shropshire Hills lies the Long Mynd with the rocky outcrops of the Stiperstones to the west. Visually, these two ‘hills’ are very different – the Long Mynd is a large and long plateau, while the rugged outline of the Stiperstones ridge is unmistakable. Together, they make up the largest area of heathland in the Shropshire Hills.
