Hadnall to Shrewsbury 7.9 mls – Miles so far 47.4   4 comments

Hadnall - Shrewsbury

Fairly simple little walk into Shrewsbury today from the campsite we stopped at last night. The Shropshire Way actually goes through this campsite so it couldn’t possibly be better positioned for us. Freezing cold but fairly bright so can’t complain for March. Original route didn’t take us past Haughmont Abbey (ruins) so we took a little diversion to take that in, putting the original mileage up from 6.5 to 7.9. It was an interesting route taking in fields, woodland, river and surprisingly, to us anyway, the remains of Shrewsbury Canal. I didn’t realise there ever was one. We’ve both always liked Shrewsbury and it was good to see it from a different direction. Got into town about 13:00 and after stopping for a few minutes to listen to an excellent busking ‘Tijuana’ band, and I sincerely regret putting money in their box but not taking a photo, we had lunch in the town before catching a taxi back to the campsite. Day off tomorrow, Whoopee !
