Shropshire Way 5 Ludlow to Coldgreen Details

Day 5 of the Shropshire Way takes you steadily uphill to Titterstone Clee Hill and into quarrying country. At least you’ll be at the third highest point in the county at 533m and if the weather’s on your side, a view. The walk ends in the middle of nowhere – Coldgreen – and you may need to organise a taxi or try and find accommodation (the nearby Malt House Farm YH on the older maps is shut, surprise surprise!) though there is a pub here. So you’ll need to make sure you stock up in Ludlow before setting off.

The Shropshire hills are a convenient get away if you want a hilly walk but the mountains of Snowdonia and the Lakes are too far to travel for the weekend.
