Welcome to Whitchurch Walkers
to The Ramblers
in and around Whitchurch Shropshire - a Walkers are Welcome town
|Date||Meet at Sherrymill Hill car park, unless otherwise stated||Walk Leader(s)|
This is a walk of approximately 5 miles exploring the footpaths and wonders of the Whixall area.
Dogs on leads welcome.
|Sun 10th Dec 09.00am|
This 8-mile walk follows the canal towpath to start, then through the tunnel to Chirk. Traversing Chirk Castle grounds to pick up Offas Dyke path, later joining The Shropshire and Maelor Ways to return back to the start.
Due to daylight restrictions at this time of year, this walk will leave Sherrymill Hill car park at the earlier time of 9.00am, so the walk will commence at 10am from Chirk bank.
People should bring torches for the tunnel transit, and then if time gets tight, we will have illumination.
|Sat 16th Dec 10.00am||Christmas Walk (and for members, the Christmas Meal)|
To ring the changes, we will catch the 10.05 bus  to Prees Heath [The Raven] and walk back via Brown Moss. 4 miles, so 10.00am start from Whitchurch Bus Station.
Members can also book to attend the Christmas Meal (see recent email).
