Wistanstow ways 1-Shropshire
Wistanstow ways 1-Shropshire
A view towards Wistanstow from the junction of two public footpaths on the northern edge of the village. One leads from opposite Gate House, to the west of Upper Affcot with the former Travellers Rest pub and the other runs from the hamlet of Strefford, crossing the A49 Shrewsbury road and the Hereford - Shrewsbury railway line on the way. At one time back in the 1950s and 60s you could stand on the A49 at say, Grove Bank and hear an approaching vehicle, of which there were not very many, long before it reached you. These days you would be taking your life in your hands. From this path junction, a short stretch leads into the far end of Wistanstow churchyard. Time taken 3.52 pm BST (British Summer Time).
