Summary: The Simon Evans Way is a tribute walk in Shropshire, dedicated to a popular man who was a writer and also the local postman. The full route of about 17 miles runs between Cleobury Mortimer and north of Stottesdon around a figure of eight pattern intersecting at Detton Hall. The route is designedd to reflect the way that Simon Evans, postman of Cleobury from 1926-1939, followed the valley of the river Rea on his daily round. However, rather than accurately following the footsteps of the famous postman the route is laid out to capture the beauty of South Shropshire along the Rea Valley looking towards the Clee Hills. Beginning and ending in Cleobury Mortimer the way visits Bank Top Far, Titford Bridge, Coneybury Coppice, Prescott, Stottesdon, Duddlewick Bridge, Hinton Bridge, Hinton Wood, Hardwickforge, Honeysuckle, Oreton and Neen Savage.
