“Lovely Views”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 22, 2012

Ideal for walkers with moderate fitness upwards. 20mins to top. Cottage open for snacks half-way. Veteran and fit walkers could investigate more pathways and complete to far side towards Ironbridge.
Bluebells, aconites, ransomes (wild garlic) flowers during variying seasons. Local Monument seen from miles around. (All Around the Wrekin - song). Check no fog or low cloud for views. Annual Barrel Race to top by locals carrying beer barrel.

“A good walk / ramble”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 18, 2012

What can you say about the Wrekin. A hill where ancients Brits used to live with remnants of a Hill Fort at the top. A good walk to clear the head and enjoy the scenery once at the top. The best walks are though the woodland at the base of the hill and here you may see the deer, squirrels and other mammals and birds native to the area. Throughout the week and early evening you will always be with other walkers and on a Sunday morning you may struggle to park the car, yes this place is extremely popular. So if you haven’t done it then you should, i have met many a walker who has travelled from all over the UK to visit this landmark. As a footnote i would add – if you have a picnic or drink then please remember to take empty packaging home.

“Great views”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 15, 2012

Its the place to see Shropshire from on a clear day, and the walk up it is well worth it. The county of Shropshire is such a lovely place.
