The Marches group organise a number of challenge walks with a well respected pedigree amongst LDWA members. In addition we have been developing a programme of social walks, taking members to many little known areas within Shropshire and Herefordshire.

It is only July, the Longmynd Hike in October is full, Neil is fussing about the The Tinsel Trail in December and Jayne is sending me details about the SSC next February. I have got a 70th birthday in Venice in September - but entries for that are already closed.
Telford Tinsel Trail
The Tinsel trail returns to Coalport with Chris Dawes's fascinating route around greenfields, iron works and over the Wrekin. Neil is taking entries and all the details are on the LDWA website. Download an entry form here in docx or pdf format.

South Shropshire Circular 2018
For the 36th SSC, we pay a return visit to Norbury to enjoy the facilities of its splendid new village hall. The hill country around Norbury is some of the most attractive within the AONB, with long stretches offering extensive views from Rights of Way largely unhindered by gates and stiles. Add to this the fact that the route is on one OS Explorer map and the country is made for some fine, fast walking or running. But it should not be underestimated in winter conditions.
You can view more information here.
Entries will be online through SIentries and will open in October.
Entry details for all our challenge walks are on the main LDWA site and of course in Strider
