From the historic church of Holdgate in the heart of the Corvedale Valley

- the 22 and 10 mile routes climb to Abdon Burf, the highest point in Shropshire. After visiting Clee St Margaret village Hall for much needed refreshments both routes return via the Jack Mytton Way to Tugford, the short route returns to Holdgate and the long route climbs Wenlock Edge for superb views out to mid Wales
New for 2020 is the 14 mile route that starts in Holdgate, makes its way to Tugford and joins the long route to visit Broncroft Castle, Wenlock Edge and the second checkpoint in Eaton Church (famed for its Scone station and seventeenth century pulpit)
