    hedgerow joined by a fence, in the fence you will find an old wooden gate, and to the left a style,
    you want to go through the gate.
    At this point turn around and take in the views, you are in Shropshire, looking right you are
    looking into Wales.

    same direction and you will shortly come to a track which is a Bridleway, turn right and follow

    small group of houses.

    private garden where directly ahead you will see a style.
  10. Cross the style into the field and go diagonally to your right to join a fence, follow this until
    you come to a gate at which point you have now joined the path on your outward walk.
