Edgerley to Shrewsbury

19.5 miles - 7 to 8 hours

Fancy a longer trip in a day? Then this is for you.

Setting out on the first run from the Royal Hill near Edgerley you are deep within the Shropshire floodplains, which in the summer is packed with a wide variety of wildlife from buzzards to otters. As you head downriver you pass a series of historic man-made islands dating back to when the river was used for commercial boat traffic and fisheries. Just before half way you will pass The Wingfield Arms, giving you the option for a cooked pub lunch should you choose it. Passing under one of Thomas Telford's first bridge designs at Montford Bridge, the views begin to evolve as you find yourself surrounded by oak trees, fields and rolling hills. Arriving into the urban setting of Shrewsbury town, you will get a unique view of the castle shortly before arriving at Frankwell where we collect you in one of our minibuses and return you to your vehicle.
