My grandparents have farmed here for nearly 60 years. My mother was born on the field across the land from the car park by Devils Chair (see the very straight lined trees? A house sat there years ago). For the last 25 years my grandparents have lived 2 fields up the road at Knolls Farm. This is my most treasured... More

I've not been up there for many years, so needed to do a couple of visits to plan out a walk for a retired persons group. There were mixed abilities within our group, so pleased I could find a number of alternatives. Impressed with the all - ability trail, just off the car park. People in wheelchairs can use this...

Awe inspiring. A place of wild, tragic beauty. We drove from Ludlow through the beautiful and very far from the Madding Crowd Shropshire countryside along narrow roads and in between sheep folds. The ascent up the Stipperstones was a gentle, easy climb that led onto a long, rock strewn ridge replete with outrageously purple heather and ghastly sharp rock formations.... More

I love this place, such a fantastic view and somewhere you can reflect...or see if you can see where your friends live! Every year on Boxing Day there is the dash & dawdle held at 11am - fell runners set off first and then the ramblers after. Great fun and it helps work off that Christmas dinner, well if you... More

Fantastic views, very well signposted. Parked at The Bog car park where you can start a walk without climbing too high. called in a lovely visitor centre where you could buy coffee and cake and lots of local cards and craft. A nice ending to a wonderful walk.

we cycled up to the Stiperstones ! I would only recommend this if you have good climbing legs and nerves of steel for the descents! However, at the top, I was really impressed by the Easy Access trail.If you can't walk far, have a mobility scooter, or small children in pushchairs, then this is for you. It's a level ,... More
