Jack Mytton Way 4 from Roman Bank to Plowden

The fourth section of the Jack Mytton Way from Roman Bank to Plowden following The Portway along the Long Mynd. You’ll pass through the historic town of Church Stretton on the way where Victorians, making use of the newly invented railways, would come for the waters. It was once earmarked as a railway hub, but you’d be hard pressed to believe that today.

If you’re following the circular route then you need to follow this route instead.

The Jack Mytton Way is a series of bridlepaths in the Shropshire countryside named after Mad Jack Mytton. A legend who earned the epitaph ‘Mad’ by attempting 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.

This follows on from stage 3 and the next stage is on to Clun.
