“The lone hill”
Reviewed 5 August 2014

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!

“Very steep”
Reviewed 4 July 2014

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 big hill”
Reviewed 1 July 2014

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