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

The Wrekin looks down over the farm, so we accepted the challenge, and up we went....from the steepest side! A very good workout, with amazing views.

I used to live near The Wrekin and used to walk and run up and around it frequently. The hill is the last of The Shropshire Hills, therefore overlooks the surrounding flat lands meaning that the view is not obstructed until the horizon in some directions. The main route is about 3 miles up and down and takes just over... More

Have walked up the Wrekin several times and it always worth the climb. You can see 4 or 5 counties from the top on a clear day. The climb can be steep in places so if you have walking difficulties perhaps take a stick. You can also walk all the way round the foot of the Wrekin, which is also... More

Beautiful walk through woods. We climbed to the top, lovely views. There are 3 marked routes to take depending on how far you want to go. Steep in places.

The Wrekin and the Ercall are two hills close to Wellington, Shropshire. The walk up the Wrekin is by a well maintained path and is a relatively easy hill walk providing magnificent views from the summit. There are plenty of walkers sharing the view, evidenced by all the cars in the car park and lining the approach rod. By contrast,... More
