Shropshire village of Shifnal 4 mile walk

I did this walk on the 4th May 2011. A 4 mile circular walk from Shifnal, a small market town in Shropshire, about 3 miles east of Telford. Once an important staging post on the road from London to Holyhead. The town still boasts many good quality hotels, inns and pubs. Charles Dickens stayed here and featured some of the town's buildings in 'The Old Curiosity Shop'. Little Nell is buried in the graveyard of Tong Church closeby. Shifnal widened its grand main street in the 13th century after the town was granted a market charter. Nearby stands Boscobel House, the site of the Royal Oak where Charles II hid after the Battle of Worcester in 1651. Other attractions include the RAF Musuem at Cosford and Weston Park.

Hi Andy, just found this, lovely pics looks a wonderful walk. My son works in Telford so not far away. I live in Brierley Hill, by the Merry Hill shopping centre, so no beautiful scenery for me, but I can always jump in the car and drive out to the country, not far away.

Thanks for the blog.

Trish :thumbsup:
