The March ARS (Audlem Rambling Society) walk is in Shropshire and is organised by Simon Probert. This is his description of the walk:-
This coming Saturday's walk (10th March) will start from Poles Coppice Nature Reserve car park situated on the minor road between Minsterley and Habberley.
We start with a short walk up the lane before entering woodland where a steady climb will take us to the highest point of the walk above Snailbeach.From there we descend to Vessons.
There follows an easy, but possibly muddy section, before a gradual climb along the flanks of Huglith Hill. We then pick up The Marches Way for an easy stroll to Habberley. Refreshments available at the Inn.
After a flat section from Habberley we climb to the trig point on Earls Hill. This is a steep climb but relatively short and is worth the effort for the views alone, weather permitting of course. A steep descent followed by some easy walking eventually takes us back to the car park.
The total distance of the walk is 10 miles and involves about 1800 feet ascent. I would therefore put it in the upper 3 boot range.
I suggest we meet at 8.30am at Audlem car park.
