Wrekin walk

Well worth it for the view and to clear the cobwebs away. Lovely place to go and would recommend it to any visitor if they are able to climb!

A nice uphill climb with fantastic views. You might want to take a little drink with you as there isn't a cafe or shop very nearby.

Not being local, I thought a "walk up the Wrekin" was akin to the saying a "walk up the road". Ill prepared to walk up what I found, much to my distress, was a very big hill/mountain. Reader, be aware, flip flops are not suitable and it is best to take a Thermos as there is no cafe at the... More

My fella and I decided to walk the Wrekin to try to wear out our two 15 month Border Collies. And it has worked! It was steep and uneven but enjoyable. I was disappointed, as a dog owner, that people had let their dogs crap everywhere and if they had picked it up they had chucked the bags of crap... More

This is one place you must walk if you visit Telford Shropshire, you must love walking and be relatively fit, or just take your time, the walk is so interesting and the veiw at the top on a clear day is BREATHTAKING. You must do it.

We enjoyed above stroll up the Wrekin with my 4 year old nephew and he managed it just fine..as you get higher the views are more impressive. A nice free couple of hours with the family. Or on another occasion, a good 50 minute free work out!

Stayed in the Buckatree hotel and went for a walk, for some excersise, the path to the summit was well trodden and easy to follow. The views from the top well worth a visit, but the rubbish left by people was pretty disgusting, but since it is so popular it was like picadilly circus at the top until it started... More
