I am fortunate to only live 3 miles from the Wrekin, Apart from making a scenic view from my home it is also a good place for walks, although there are paths to follow, they are long and windy and in some places quite steep. Half way up (or down) depending on your fitness level there is a cafe that... More

Although I love walking up the Wrekin I can't believe how some dog walkers can just throw their bags in the trees. It's disgusting to see them all hanging from the branches. I know most dog walkers are conscientious and decent enough to dispose of them properly but there are lots that have no regard for this lovely walk. Maybe... More

Set just outside Wellington climbing this hill offers great views over Telford/ ironbridge. Takes around 1 1/2 hours to walk up and is mostly by path. Some parts of the track are rather muddy so be careful on a wet day.

Okay on nice days parking at the bottom of the Wrekin can be slight problem so you may end up parking the road. The first bit of the walk is steepish and can be bit muddy but unless you have mobility issues going up the Wrekin should not be a problem. As I write this there is a cafe a... More

I actually really love The Wrekin, not only because I live close because it's great if you have nothing to do on a sunny day, you want to spend time walking with the family or you have a specific event or sponsored walk to do. It's quite steep I find at the top of the Wrekin and therefore for me,... More

The Wrekin is the biggest and best landmark of the area. It defines Telford and you can see it from as far away as Wolverhampton on some days. It is brilliant for families couples and friends. On a clear day the views are stunning. My Granddad used to tell stories of going up the Wrekin with friends in the early... More
