Telford is dominated by the grand shape of The Wrekin - sadly, not a volcano, but made up of ancient lavas. A walk to the top offers magnificent views, especially to the south, where views extend as far as the Malvern Hills, and the mountains of South Wales. On a good day, you can pick out The Sugarloaf at Abergavenny,... More

Always worth a walk to the top. Went up on Sunday in the pouring rain and low cloud. Not much of a view in the cloud but good exercise. On a clear day you get a great view across Shropshire.

While we were visiting Shropshire we wanted to do a walk at the Wrekin, we bought a book consisting of the various walks you can do, we did a 6 mile walk starting from the square in Church Stretton, the views you see are amazing and the different age group of people we saw walking, can highly recommend and we...

Great walk with stunning views.... Good for all the family! Lots of alternative routes to be taken. Would recommend bottles of water on warmer days but be prepared for wind at the top!

Great family day out. Ample parking, pack lots of water though, it's thirsty work! I'd allowed at least an hour to climb The Wrekin, twice that if you're with young kids.

Nice walk, great views. Gets pretty busy but if you take one of the alternative routes you can get away from the crowds. If you're lucky you might see some deer. It's not exactly Everest but you'll still need some degree of fitness to reach the top.

Lovely walk up, passed lots of families and couples having a leisurely stroll up - great way to pass the time and get a bit fitter.

Ok, truth is, we made it about half way before deciding we are not fit enough to tackle the Wrekin!! But it was a fabulous walk, nonetheless, and the views are spectacular.
