Welcome to the CMFA website
NEW YEARS DAY
There's no Boxing Day walk this year but we welcome the return of our traditional New Years Day walk. Meet in front of St. Mary's Church in time for a 2pm start. All welcome including accompanied children and dogs on leads. However there are a few stiles with dog gates that may be unsuitable for large dogs. The walk will take about 2 hours followed by a bowl of hot food free to walkers in the Kings Arms. The CMFA secretary will be on hand to collect £5/head annual subscription from members new and old.
Mawley Estate have told us that they are going to be filling in a wet depression in Parkers Plantation on the Round of Golf route - a diversion will be sign posted.
Good news from Milson -the Council have installed a new footbridge on footpath 44 near the landing strip.
CMFA maintains footpaths up to 5 miles around Cleobury Mortimer, clearing overgrown routes and putting in gates, stiles, fingerposts etc to make footpaths more accessible.
We are part of a network of volunteer groups in Shropshire and are supported by the Council’s staff. See Footpaths Work
For more information about us, including how to join CMFA see About Us.
Our members lead a range of group walks. These include:
Short Walking for Health walks for the little less able.
Local Parish Walks of about 2 hours on Sunday mornings.
Longer Social Walks away from Cleobury.
The walk guides are available to download or to purchase and they all can now be downloaded to your phone. Please go to the Walk Leaflets page of this website.
WALK PLANNING AND FOOTPATH PROBLEMS:
There are many oddities on our footpath network which are not obvious from looking at a map if you are not familiar with the area. We offer advice to walk planners here. However, we cannot keep track of all problems that arise on footpaths throughout the area, but we will post here and on our Facebook page when we know of any new issues. If you discover any problems or would like advice about a specific route email firstname.lastname@example.org"
When walking in the countryside, please follow the Countryside Code. This link will open an informative leaflet on the code itself and gives plenty of information on the need for control of your dog, respecting the privacy of land owners and other matters.
