The old road

The sign at the start of the section we walked said “Byway”. It was a main way, many years ago. The road from Morville now joins the road from Wenlock to Ludlow at Shipton, bypassing its former route, a three mile stretch to Beambridge. We’re walking along the southern part, on which a tarred surface serves one or two isolated houses – it then becomes a rough unsurfaced track. Well-lined with trees on either side, nevertheless there are good views to the east, to Brown Clee, and to the west to Wenlock Edge. We can hear the traffic on the main road (favoured by noisy bikers), but otherwise this is a quiet route – just the dozens of butterflies for company. There’s no-one else about.
