    This stage affords some rare level walking on a trail that is typically hilly as heck.

    With only 100 feet (30 meters) of ascent and 11 miles (18 kilometers) of distance, this stage is the easiest on the entire trail.

    Before you leave Buttington, it is worth visiting the Church of All Saints, which dates from the 14th century and retains many of its original architectural features.

    You then follow the River Severn until you reach Neath Brook, just south of where it joins the Severn.

    The trail continues through farmland to Four Crosses and then follows the Montgomery Canal all the way to Llanymynech, where this stage finishes.

    Llanymynech is an interesting place because the England and Wales border runs right down the main street.

    There is a good range of accommodation, places to eat and drink, as well as a shop in Llanymynech.
