AUTHOR: Bob Caddick & Bob Alton
A Boot Up The Shropshire Hills
A Boot Up The Shropshire Hills
  • Description
  • Related

Whether a “Sunday stroller” or a more enthusiastic walker, Shropshire has plenty to offer by way of varied walks, many of them taking in upland landscapes with breathtaking views. Shropshire is England’s largest land locked county, and you can find walks here where often you will not be troubled by another soul as well as places with delightfully cosy tea shops and pubs for those who prefer a little company.

This handy book contains detailed routes and images of 10 walks in a variety of locations around the county, ranging from the dramatic hills of the south to the gentler, but no less scenic landscapes around the Shrewsbury and Shifnal areas. The walks suit the needs of families, groups of friends or individuals looking for a gentle stroll or a longer walk, and reflect the many varied facets of the area – its people, its history, and its landscape and will help first time visitors to experience some of the great scenery the area has to offer.

With Bob Caddick’s photographs providing visual inspiration and well researched walks compiled by Bob Alton, this work will provide expert guidance for those seeking to get out and about, but who don’t quite know where to go for the best views or easiest access to the countryside.

Award winning photographer, Bob Caddick, is also a freelance writer who brings an editorial approach to his photography, loving to “tell the story” in pictures as well as words. Based in the Midlands, Bob is centrally located and his work reflects the varied scenery and activities that attract his eye. Bob Caddick’s work appears in magazines and picture libraries across Europe and America, as well as books and newspapers in the UK.

Bob Alton lives in Shropshire and has been a keen walker for at least 30 years, completing numerous long-distance trails. A retired journalist, he has written a regular weekly walk column for West Midlands regional evening newspaper the Express & Star and for a monthly magazine. Bob is a local footpaths secretary for the Ramblers Association and regularly leads group walks.
