Follow the road around the church past a road on the right and then turn right onto a bridleway opposite the church wall and a seat.

Continue along the bridleway for a little over a mile. The track becomes tarmac at Lower Park Farm and leads into Shrawardine.

At the village turn right with the road and then shortly left past the church downhill towards the river, leaving the Millennium Green and castle mound behind you on the right. The road bends sharply to the right before the river is reached and you then continue on this minor road for nearly 2 miles to a crossroads.

Turn left here and after half a mile bear left on a busier road where on your right is the last part of Nesscliffe Training Camp. Follow the road round bends for over half a mile to the hamlet of Pentre, continue forwards, passing 2 minor roads on your left, to a kissing gate.

Cross road to another stile and head for a gap slightly to the left ahead, and after this bear slightly right to a stile and plank bridge into the edge of a caravan park. Leave the Severn Way and follow the track to the left out through the caravan park to a road with the River Severn in front of you. Turn right and arrive at the Royal Hill Inn.

From the Royal Hill follow the road to the right past the first minor road on the right (rejoining the Severn Way) and continue for over half a mile, round a right-hand bend, and then forward on the road towards Crosslanes and Maesbrook, (leaving a road on your the left to Melverley), for another half a mile to a left-hand bend.

Here turn right onto a rough track and follow it northwards for just over a mile to a road near Edgerley, then turn left along the road for 1 mile to Kinnerley village.
