Walking For Health


Walking is fun, free and can be done anytime, anywhere. You don't need any fancy equipment and there aren't any joining fees.

In fact, walking in the great outdoors has been proven to have positive effects on many aspects of our health, such as reducing stress or improving mental wellbeing.

Walking for Health encourages you to enjoy your local natural spaces and benefit your health by taking part in organised health walks. Founded by Natural England, the initiative aims to support people, particularly those who take little exercise, to do regular short walks in their communities.

Wenlock Edge

Wenlock Edge is a limestone escarpment created 400 million years ago when Shropshire could be found just south of the equator and boasted a Caribbean type of environment.  Its ancient woodlands have excellent walks and are popular for cycling and riding.  There are many fossils hidden in the area's rocks including ancient corals, crinoids and trilobites.  The limestone of Wenlock Edge has been exploited for many years. The first use was for building material and for burning in small lime kilns.

The National Trust, who manage seven miles of the Edge, has now restored some of the old lime kilns to preserve a part of the industrial heritage of the area.  The limestone edge also provides ideal conditions for many rare flowers and supports ancient woodland on its slopes.There are stunning views of the surrounding Shropshire countryside from the Edge.

Wroxeter Roman City (17 miiles)

Wroxeter (or 'Viroconium') was the fourth largest city in Roman Britain. It began as a legionary fortress and later developed into a thriving civilian city. Though much still remains below ground, today the most impressive features are the 2nd century municipal baths, and the remains of the huge wall dividing them from the exercise hall in the heart of the city.

The site museum and audio tour reveal how Wroxeter worked in its heyday, and the health and beauty practices of its 5,000 citizens. (There is also a Winery in Wroxeter so you can do both places in one day!)
