The Argae along the River Vyrnwy

Stage 14: Llanymynech to Nesscliffe

The argae is a flood defence along quite a stretch of the River Vyrnwy as you walk this stage. A warning that in winter after heavy rainfall some areas can be flooded.

The unusually wet weather this year has led to flooding around the River Vyrnwy . To avoid this it is suggested that you take a route along roads from SJ315193 near to Fisherman's Reach cottage, all the way to Melverley village.

The unusual timber framed church of St Peter's at Melverley stands right on the river bank . The Shropshire Way joins the Severn Way here and leaves the village crossing a stile at the road. The lanes can be used as an alternative if the fields are wet. A short deviation to The Royal Hill pub is a pleasant location by the river to pause for refreshment.

You are strongly advised to take an OS map and/or a GPS to walk the route. Please note the digital OS maps will show the new Main Route from January 2019.
