This hill dominates the local area. Tree covered with tracks for the more keen people to walk to the top.

There are 2 main routes to climb the Wrekin, one from the South, one North. The parking areas are obvious. From both sides the climb is short and sharp so a reasonable level of fitness is required. The view SW along the old Stretton Fault...More

Lovely place to take kids and dogs, gives the muscles a good work out, takes a good hour to walk up at a steady pace, views are well worth it, tea shop and ice creams quarter way up, nice place for a picnic

A nice walk for everyone. If you walk up the main track there is a steep slope towards the top. However you can walk around the Wrekin if you wish and there are various ways of walking up. Views from the top are great.
