Border Wanderings on the Bus this Sunday 19 May in South Shropshire
Join local author A.T.D Evans (David) on the new Castle Connect Shuttle bus this Sunday 19 May 2013. David, author of 'Border Wanderings', local and social history of the Marches, will be on board the new Shuttle bus to recount local stories and highlight some of the history of this beautiful border landscape.

Stephanie Hayes, Promotions Officer at the Shropshire Hills AONB Partnership, comments “David will be on the bus for the day, so join him for part to enjoy a day out with a difference and discover more about the history of the Teme Valley, Offa’s Dyke and the Shropshire Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.”

Castle Connect departs from Ludlow Assembly Rooms at 9.45am, and heads along the Teme Valley through Leintwardine and Brampton Bryan to Knighton.  At Knighton, the Shuttle heads into the Shropshire Hills to Clun and Bishop’s Castle, before returning along the same route to Ludlow, arriving 12.15pm.

Stephanie added “There is no need to buy a special ticket for the event on Sunday, just buy your Shuttle ticket as usual as you board the bus. Concessionary bus passes are accepted and reduced tickets available for under 25’s and families. “
