Shobdon Memorial Walks

Shobdon Memorial Walks.

The Shobdon Memorial Walks are a group of walks around the parish to commemorate those who died serving their country during WW1. The servicemen grew up in the community and their names have been taken from the War Memorial which is situated on the village green.

There are six walks at present.

A guide and Map are available for each walk with routes waymarked where necessary. A selection of photos from each walk can also be seen in the galleries.

Thank you to Richard Bowen the Parish Footpaths Officer for initiating the project and designating the paths and their names.

Thank you to Karen Roberts for walking and detailing the routes together with photographs.
