Ramble, amble or scramble around the beautiful Shropshire Hills and help us beat blood cancer

Round and About Walks offer adventurous types the chance to ramble, amble or scramble through the Shropshire countryside. Participants can choose from three distinct routes and distances, catering for a wide range of abilities and experience.

Ramble – 23 miles

This beautiful circular walk rambles over the rolling Shropshire hills from and back to Bishops Castle, via Offa’s Dyke, the Shropshire Way, the Walcot Estate and Bury Ditches, with a welcome hot vegetarian lunch provided at Clun. 

Scramble – 13 miles

This hill walk leaves Bishops Castle, to climb up to Offa’s Dyke from Mainstone, and enjoys views along the Cefns before dropping down to Clun, past its castle, for lunch and transport back to Bishops Castle. 

Amble – 10 miles

Transport is provided to Clun for lunch, before an undulating stroll to Bury Ditches, then through the normally private Walcot Estate, and Oakley Mynd, to Bishops Castle.

The route

The Scramble and Amble follow the same route as the Ramble, which crosses quite remote countryside, some of which is not normally open to the public. It is, however, particularly safe in that we provide clear signage, written instructions and helpful marshals. 

Written instructions, refreshments, lunch, transport as needed, and a certificate are all provided.

Please note that we are unable to allow dogs on this walk. This is mostly due to the walk being entirely on agricultural land.

How to sign up

Register online or via postal entry. After 1 April, all entry fees rise to £20.

The impact

By taking part in this event, you’ll help us fund our ground-breaking research which has made such a difference to blood cancer.
