There are some 50 footpaths in the Weobley Parish, most of them gated for easy access. Many of them are Public Footpaths and Bridleways but also many are Permissive Paths. These are paths which landowners permit people to walk across their land. We hope you will enjoy walking either with an organised group or with your dog(s). As this is a rural community there are quite a few animals about. Keep your dog on a lead, particularly when young lambs are about and beware of cattle as they can become very protective of their young.
Every Saturday morning a village walk is provided by the footpath wardens. We start from Wildgoose Chase, opposite the Gables Guesthouse at 8 a.m. and walk for between an hour and a half to two hours. All are welcome (and their dogs). Please wear stout waterproof boots.
A team of volunteers, led by footpath officer Mike Ware, maintains the footpaths. Maintenance means keeping stiles free from overgrowth, repairing stiles and bridges setting up and maintaining way-markers and hours and hours of strimming during early spring and throughout the summer months.
The aim of the volunteers is to provide safe and easy access to the beauty of the countryside while protecting farmer's crops and property. Therefore a high degree of co-operation between the footpath officers and landowners. If you'd like to help, please contact us on one of the numbers below.
