Start­ing from Church Stret­ton, head east on the B4371 (Sand­ford Av­enue) across the A49 and through Hope Bowdler to Wall.

Turn right onto Darby Lane and con­tinue through Tick­ler­ton to Ac­ton Scott, across the A49 to Min­ton and Lit­tle Stret­ton back to Church Stret­ton.

Take a left in the town cen­tre and up The Bur­way. To­wards the top, bear right, head­ing north to Ratlinghope. Con­tinue on smaller roads over the Long Mynd and up to the Stiper­stones.

From here, the route is less se­vere and in­cludes the only A-road sec­tion – a brief 4km on the A488. Aster­ton Bank is a killer, but at least you can put ev­ery­thing into it, know­ing that it’s all down­hill from there to the fin­ish.
