    Following the success of our OM walks in south Shropshire, several of us fancy visiting the area again.

    We have walked some of Long Mynd and parts of the Stretton Hills but there's still plenty to explore - Wild Moor on the Mynd, the many batches and hollows (valleys) leading up to the Mynd plateau, Hope Bowdler Hill and Ragleth Hill. A bit further afield wecould walk the Wrekin or the three tops along Wenlock Edge - Middlehope, Diddlebury Common, and Callow Hill.

    The idea is to meet early in the day for a moderately long (ten miles minimum) brisk-paced walk on a Saturday. There are campsites in the area (though several are March-Oct only) for those who want to make a weekend of it.

    Who's up for a walk in South Shropshire? Add your name below. Also note what date(s) would suit you?
    1. Skip (not January nor first two weekends in Feb)

    1. Skip (not January nor first two weekends in Feb.)

    2. Smoky (camping sounds good)

    I would like to have a wander on Corden Hill on the Sunday and maybe a look at Mitchell's Fold.

    Mitchell doesn't let just anyone look at his fold

    BTW, somewhat to my surprise Corndon Hill is in Powys not Shropshire.

    I would like to come. However, I usually have to take my son to his rowing training on Sat and Sun mornings, which is 25 miles in the wrong direction. If I can persuade SWMBO to take him I'll join in. I'll just try and fit in with whatever arrangements you make.

    No date yet but probably mid Feb onwards for a ten-mile ( minimum) brisk-paced walk on a Saturday. Routes not set but could include:
    Carding Mill Valley and Lightspout Hollow to Wild Moor on Long Mynd;
    Hope Bowdler Hill, Ragleth Hill, Caer Caradoc;
    Corndon Hill, Mitchell's Fold;
    The Wrekin

    I think it might turn into a sailing trip, rather than a walking one
