  stile-free map cropping

As spring moves towards summer, we are coming to the season when obstruction by cropping can be an issue on some paths. If you come across such problems, please let both us and the local authority know. As well as the location it is helpful if the footpath number can be provided. For paths in Whitchurch Urban and Whitchurch Rural parishes most commonly affected by cropping, these can be found on maps accessible by clicking here or on the cropping photo above. Path numbers can also be found on the relevant local authority website's  Definitive Map:                         Shropshire footpath map     Wrexham footpath map

Local Footpaths and our P3 team
m

Whitchurch Walkers runs one of the most active of the 60 or so P3 teams in Shropshire. P3 or Parish Paths Partnership teams are groups of local volunteers who maintain footpaths in their local area using furniture supplied by Shrosphire Council. Our own team currently numbering 6 at full strength, goes out most Monday mornings and works mainly in Whitchurch Urban and Rural parishes. The team is grateful to Whitchurch Town Council for the use of storage facilities in its shed at Jubilee Park. The team usually meets there or at the adjacent Sherry Mill Hill car park at 9.30am on Mondays. Additional volunteers - you don't have to be there every week - are always welcome. Please get in touch.

Much of our recent  work has involved the installation of kissing-gates to replace stiles and thereby create a number of stile-free, gated walks.

The following routes are now completely stile-free:
