Mandi and I visit the Wrekin quite often as it is a heart pumping walk from the base car park to the summit. Its only about 3 miles up and down but the views on a clear day are beautiful.It can be walked at a leisurely speed and people of all ages can enjoy, however, if you want a heart... More

Shropshire's most iconic hill and a challenging climb to the summit, either by the main partly paved path or by more hidden and more interesting alternatives.

Its a steepish climb so be prepared can be muddy, but worth it at the top. View wasn't good due to weather conditions but still enjoyable.
