FOOTPATHS/BRIDLEWAYS/RIGHTS OF WAY
Neen Savage has a network of Footpaths, Bridleways and Rights of Way and is crossed by two of Shropshire’s most famous long distance routes, the Jack Mytton way and the Simon Evans Way.
The relevant OS maps for the Parish are Explorer 203 and Explorer 218.
The southern loop of the Jack Mytton Way starts at Cleobury Mortimer and continues through Neen Savage Parish. The Jack Mytton Way is Shropshire’s long distance bridleway (for use by those on foot, bicycle and horseback) comprising over 100 miles of rural bridleways and quiet country lanes. More information and detailed maps for the Jack Mytton Way can be obtained by following this link: http://shropshire.gov.uk/outdoor-recreation/the-jack-mytton-way/
The Simon Evans Way follows the footsteps of a writer and broadcaster who became the postman in Cleobury Mortimer in 1926. He had been recommended some walking to strengthen his weakened legs and lungs having been wounded and gassed in WW1. The Simon Evans Way (some 18 miles) traces his daily route and twists and turns along the meanders of the beautiful River Rea to form a figure of eight from the old post office in Cleobury Mortimer, up and down the valley.
In addition, there may be parts of the Parish which are open to walk or ride under the Countryside Stewardship, Environmentally Sensitive Areas and Environmental Stewardship Schemes. For more information see http://cwr.naturalengland.org.uk/default.aspx?County=SHROPSHIRE
