Bishop’s Castle Challenge Walk 2018- Section 2 – Homeward Bound.
Shelve Woods to Bishop’s Castle – Approximately 11 miles with 1500 ft ascent / climbing. 1 Mile = 1.6 Kilometres
The walk goes through the woods and across fields to the Stiperstones Nature Reserve where it joins the Shropshire Way. The path across the top of the Stiperstones Ridge is very rocky and the Challenge Walk diverts a little so you can enjoy the views while still walking!
