Walking the wrekin

Great for exercising Try and go once a week for a run! Although it's more of a brisk walk! Good for beginners and more enthusiasts- my dog loves it!

We were very lucky to pick a gorgeous November morning for our visit. Parked in the car park at the bottom and after reaching the summit carried on past Needles Eye rocks before descending through woods and then taking a left when hitting the main track to return to the car park. Took 1 3/4 hours in total. Views were... More

When coming to Telford everyone raves on about the Wrekin sure it's a nice dog walk, and the views nice at the top but its a bit of a mess fly tipping and rubbish some off the lovely sights and a small hut were you can buy some OK overpriced coffee
