National trust, English Heritage,
Natural England and Shropshire Council have finished work to
protect The Shooting Box Disc Barrow and a nearby Bowl Barrow .The plan was to close the origional route
and reinstate the bridleway (Definitive Line) that runs
parallel, 50 metres to the East, outside the Scheduled Area.
The new route runs 450 metres
from Shooting Box car park in a North/Easterly direction to
join the Portway. The route is surfaced with crushed stone
topped with dust, to about 2 metres in width. A short stretch of drainage will be
undertaken at a low point along the route to prevent water damage in the
future. The current surface material was scraped off and used to
restore the existing route through the Barrows.
