A linear, half-day countryside walk in England starting at Bromfield, Shropshire, about 13km (roughly 8 miles) long and suitable for families with children, but unsuitable for prams/pushchairs, wheelchairs.

This walk follows country paths through the beautiful countryside of Shropshire's Teme Valley.  It's a lovely part of the country for which 'rolling' is the perfect description. Buses between Craven Arms and Ludlow stop at Bromfield.

This is one of several linear walks provided by Shropshire Walking. For more routes visit: www.shropshirewalking.co.uk/shropshire-way/linear-walks.htm
