Ludlow North Loop, Part 3

A cache by : jlik

This has not yet been found

This is the third part of Ludlow North Loop starting at southeast of Shrewsbury on the A5. Continue along the A5 west and turn left onto the A488 towards Hanwood. We pass through Hanwood, almost dancing with the Shrewsbury to Machynlleth railway line that we cross three times in little over a mile. Then we follow the path of a disused railway via Pontesbury and Minsterley. South of here, the ground becomes more undulating, as we enter the Hope Valley. Open fields give way to wooded sections and we follow the route carved out by the river over many centuries. Soon we reach the England–Wales border, though for the moment we stay on the English side, except for a very brief excursion where the road crosses the river, shadowing it for a couple of miles to the south. Soon we reach the A489, which multiplexes with us for a few hundred yards to Lydham.
