Jack Mytton Way 3 from Much Wenlock to Roman Bank Details
The third section of the Jack Mytton Way from Much Wenlock to Roman Bank if you’re doing the linear route from Cleobury Mortimer to Llanfair Waterine. If you want to do the circular route, then you need to do stage 7 and 8 (links) to return to the start. The route follows Wenlock Edge, amd you’ll pass the Major’s Leap where Thomas Smallman, a Royalist Major was surrounded by roundheads and as he was carrying some rather important despatches, rather then be captured he rode his horse off the cliff His horse died, but he survived when he landed in a tree. He then made it on to Shrewsbury on foot to deliver them!
It is said that their ghosts haunt this spot today. Your trip along here will hopefully be less eventful than Thomas’.
The Jack Mytton Way is a series of bridlepaths in the Shropshire countryside named after Mad Jack Hytton. A legend who earned the epitaph ‘Mad’ by attepting to leap a toll gate with a carriaged horse, among other things. Today’s rider or cyclist won’t need to go to that extreme however, as all the track is along public roads and bridleways. You can choose from the Linear or the Circular options.
