Sunday 13th May
Moderate 11 mile
From the village of Clifton we walk down the valley to Lower Sapey, past Paradise and follow the Sapey Brook, working our way back up to Woodmanton Farm where we will see the original moat. We then descend Clifton Hill to cross Ham Bridge, following the River Teme to Shelsley Beauchanp and along the lane to Shelsley Walsh, finishing the walk with a steep incline back up the famous Shelsley hill climb to Clifton.
This walk covers muddy pastureland, wooded areas, ascents, descents and road walking, so please take care. Tea and cake or glass of beer available at the pub at the end of the walk.

Possibly muddy/slippery in places.
