 Mortimer Trail part one: Ludlow to Lyepole Bridge

 Starting at the gates of Ludlow Castle the route leads below the towering walls of the castle to cross the River Teme at Dinham Bridge. From the river there is a long and steady climb up to High Vinnalls located within the vast tract of Mortimer Forest affording superb views across the Marches and into Herefordshire. Continuing through rolling countryside the walk crosses Bircher Common before passing alongside the Iron Age hillfort of Croft Ambrey and around the edges of the National Trust's Croft Castle. Steady walking through fields and woodlands leads to Aymestrey and a short road section leading to Lyepole Bridge on the River Lugg and the minibus pickup point.

Bring a packed lunch and adequate drink for a 9 hour walk as there is no opportunity to replenish water bottles.
