Maybe it wasn't such a clever idea, but 4 of us decided to do a walk from Wentnor with Mike and Beryl leading the way. We parked and set off across the fields heading towards the Long Mynd. The gliding club on the top was clearly visible, but sensibly the pilots were not playing today. We reached Asterton and started to walk along the bridleway below the Long Mynd.

For a short while the rain gave us a break but returned as we climbed up past Birchope and eventually the long descent to Lower Gravenor where we crossed the River Onny - quick wash of boots - and then a final climb back to Wentnor. Just under 11 miles and for all the weather, a good bit of walking. Many thanks to Mike and Beryl for letting us tag along.
