Walkers Are Welcome
Cleobury Mortimer is a WAW town having been recognised nationally as a place for
visitors to come to enjoy the outdoors, bringing at the same time benefits to the
local economy. Footpaths and facilities for walkers are maintained in good condition,
and visitors are assured of a warm welcome in the pubs, cafes, shops and accommodation
that display the logo. For more information about WAW towns in Shropshire please
For a number of years, walkers have been confused as to their right to walk the driveway
accessing The Glen Caravan Park. For the past 75 years, Cleobury residents can recall
using this route for access to schools, work and recreation. A few years ago signs
were erected stating that it was not a public right of way. Subsequent to a public
inquiry held in April, the Planning Inspector has confirmed (subject to appeal) the
legal order brought by Shropshire Council for the surfaced driveway to become a public
footpath. This runs from from Catherton Rd to where it meets the footpath to Workhouse
The Planning Inspector also confirmed the legal order to extend this public footpath
from the driveway through to the bridge before Cleanly Seat. However, the original
path line was obstructed some years ago and is subject to negotiation between Shropshire
Council and the Caravan Park as there is no accessible route at this time. This will
replace the inaccessible public footpath (FP44R) erroneously shown to the north of
the brook on official maps since 1965.
Please respect the residents privacy when walking through the caravan park by staying
on the public footpaths. Excessive dog fouling has been reported along the drive,
so please keep your dogs on a lead and clear up after them.
