Shropshire Way Association (SWA)

The Association was formed 2016 and became a Registered Charity in June 2021. Its aims are to maintain, preserve and promote the Shropshire Way Main Route as a long distance path. SWA has been working with Shropshire Council to define a Main Route as distinct from the many circular routes that had been developed during recent years.

Since completing the Main Route in 2018 we have seen publication of the Cicerone Guide Book by John Gillham and the installation of our "Start & End" buzzard sculpture at Kingsland Bridge Shrewsbury.

The Association is run by a dedicated team of volunteers with practical help from Shropshire Council Outdoor Partnership Team and local P3 groups.

Financial support has been received from Ramblers Holidays Charitable Trust and anonymous donors.


Development of the website is continuous. The route definition is complete with a page for each stage and downloads of maps, .gpx files and points of interest. Temporary changes will be posted on these pages.

Design and artwork of maps and PDF Stages by MA Creative Creative, Shrewsbury.

Here is a shortened version of the presentation given at the Wellington Walking Festival in 2017. The event was used to launch the southern section of the Shropshire Way Main Route and the presentation includes some history of the path and its re-establishment. Click on the book.
