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

There is lots to see up here plus a great view from the stones. If you want a good walk you can find it. Take the tour of the old mines or see the unique holly trees where the leaves are prickly ow down to protect the leaves from being eaten but smooth leaves about above ther each of the... 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

The area in and around the Stiperstones, are well worth a visit. From the rock formations on the top of the hill range, to the Bog Visitor Centre, or the mines. Even when the weather is not so good the atmospheric views, and scenery are worth the visit. There are a number of walks for most abilities, and you can... More
