The highest point on the North Shropshire plain. Travel due east and you will not find higher ground until you reach the Urals. Quite a mystical experience in the mists and well worth a visit is this volcanic remnant.

Fabulous forested hill with great walks. Wonderful views but roads very narrow which was a problem at times.

Bit of a climb but wow the views are really special. Take a pair of binoculars to get the most out of the experience!

The walk up to the top of the Wrekin is very steep so be forewarned. Once up on clear day you can see for miles which made the huffing and puffing worth it

Good extinct volcano on the Shropshire plain. A demanding climb; marvellous views from the top. The needle's eye is worth a look.

Staying at the excellent Buckatree Hotel at the foot of the Wrekin we explored the many circular walks that can be planned. Undoubtedly the Wrekin itself is a good workout and their are many paths and ways to the top, though the main route is obvious and has the advantage of having a little cafe selling drinks and ice creams...

It's a good workout for those who are just beginning to try and lose weight or good for those who like a view once at the top! Can get busy on weekends!

The way that science was presented to the young, the displays of old items intermingled with modern. My grandkids would have been in their element

As a visitor attraction, the Wrekin is obvious: you can`t miss it, but it has a lot of potential, but compared to other similar spots, the "authorities" haven`t really promoted it in a "user friendly" way.....probably a victim of financial cuts. Is it a nature reserve, to be left untouched, or a country park to be used, or what ?... More
