A long, strenuous walk for experienced walkers. We will travel by minibus from Bishop's Castle to Hopesay, where the walk commences with a climb up onto Hopesay Common and Hill, followed by the ascent to the first hill fort at Wart Hill. We then drop back down into the Hopesay valley before the climb up to the iron-age fort of Burrow. Picking up the Shropshire Way, we descend into the Kemp Valley followed by the climb up to Bury Ditches. From here the walk goes through forest and farmland back to Bishop's Castle.
Please bring a packed lunch, snacks and plenty of drinks. A flask containing a hot drink would be useful, as we do not pass any shops or cafes.
