The Heart of England is just that - furthest removed from the sea and with areas as yet virtually unchanged for hundreds of years. If Hobbits ever existed, this is where they would have lived!

If you fancy a walk in Shropshire with a handy pub en route, pay a visit to Go2Shropshire - 4 walks listed all with hostelries along the way!

Lots of walking information here from the Rambler’s Association Shropshire area group - everything from walks to long distance paths to the importance of maps!

I couldn’t of course leave Countrywalkers out - my own seventeen-year-old site with over a dozen detailed walks in the Malvern Hills and Cotswolds plus lots of other interesting stuff! The accompanying picture was taken by myself  June 2006 on a beautiful hot day and shows just how few people get up there on a weekday! Try a couple of the walks on the site and get hooked by the views - or just lie in the grass and listen to nothing. Great.

Plenty of detailed Worcestershire walks can be found here, courtesy of Worcestershire County Council - ‘Charming villages, bustling towns and the magnificent cathedral city of Worcester nestle in a mixture of mature woodland, meandering river valleys, fruit orchards and farmland’. And it’s all here for you.

And it’s all true

Herefordshire is an enticing proposition for walkers who love peace and tranquility. As perhaps the most rural county in England, Herefordshire offers a wealth of unspoilt countryside where you can find solitude in which to reflect on the beauty around you. Plenty of walking information for the area here.
