Local Family - Now Enjoying Walks, But Need More..

Hi we live in Dorrington just outside of Stretton and have done some local walks including the one here you describe. The way you've described it giving Grid references and descriptions is brilliant !
Have you got any more ?
We've not done any over the Long Mynd as we don't know where to start from
have you done any more informative walks like this posted anywhere ..?
Many Thanks
Steve
