ARS walk this Saturday

Views from Huglith Hill

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.
