'More Favourite Walks around Oswestry and the Borders

a book of walks published by the Oswestry Group of the Ramblers

This series of books was born out of an idea to record some of our members’ favourite walks in this outstanding walking country for posterity.

This second book follows the same format as the first and introduces 16 new walks. They are all less than 6 miles long and cover the length and breadth of the Oswestry border area.

The Walks in the Tanat Valley whilst relatively strenuous provide spectacular views of the Berwy Mountains, the Tanat Valley and the Shropshire Plain. The walks down in the south introduce the countryside around the confluence of the Rivers Severn and Vyrnwy. We have included four walks of different lengths and grades from Oswestry town centre to introduce the lovely countryside literally on the doorstep. In the north we have two walks in the spectacular but steep sided Ceiriog Valley and over to the east we introduce walkers to Overton and the river Dee.

We love to walk in this area of unspoilt country side, and are pleased to introduce it to you and believe that you will come to enjoy it as we do. Nothing pleases us more than to meet people on our walks enjoying this area we call our Oswestry Ramblers’ area for the first time. We hope the book is of interest to both residents and visitors.

The book is available at a price of £4.95 from local retail outlets, or can be obtained from Peter Carr, Secretary of the Oswestry Group of the Ramblers (Tel 01691 780 722)
