The authors of this book seek to promote 'Slow Travel' in the Marches by encouraging people to immerse themselves in the locality and this book fits this approach well. Ludlow is currently seeking to become a 'Walkers Welcome' town. Mortimer Country lies to the west and south west of Ludlow towards the Radnorshire hills of Wales, just a short ride by bus, train or bicycle. It is a deeply rural enclave with a richness and diversity of landscapes from rolling wooded hills to revered riverside meadows. The Arrow, Clun, Lugg and Teme rivers are all designated as Sites of Special Scientific Interest.
There are numerous castles, churches and historic houses open to the public, plus villages with rural inns of character. There are also a small number of attractions such as the Aardvark Bookery at Brampton Bryan and Croft Castle, near Yarpole, which are ideal places for the walker to visit. It?s a wonderful area and with this guide you can enjoy it to the full.
