The BC ring is a circular long distance footpath based on the small market town of Bishop's Castle in the southwest of Shropshire. The walk is mostly in the county of Shropshire though part of the walk crosses into Powys, Wales. From the start in the centre of Bishop’s Castle the walk goes along the Kerry Ridgeway, through the Edenhope Valley, Offa’s Dyke and on to Mainstone church. From the church the walk continues along Offa’s Dyke and the spectacular Cefn’s Ridge before dropping down to the town of Clun with it’s Norman castle, church and interesting houses. After Clun the walk climbs the ridge to Hopton Castle, Three Ashes and over Clunbury Hill and then the walk drops down to Aston-on-Clun, on to Hopesay Common, Plowden station and on to Asterton. Now the BC Ring climbs up to the Long Mynd and past the Midland Gliding Club before dropping down to Bridges before ascending to classic Stiperstones. The BC Ring then crosses Stapely Common to the ancient stones of Mitchell’s Fold, over Corndon Hill and Roundton Hill and into the Camlad valley before the final stretch through Saddlers Little Wood and return to Bishop’s Castle.
