Lovely walk, very rocky and steep in places. Walking boots recommended, hiking pole would be a good idea. Spectacular scenery, plenty of sheep, picturesque waterfall.

A great walk, partly cloudy with some sun, scenery is stunning. Very much recommend.

Public footpath close to the Iron Bridge trail. Woodland route, good for kids to go off track to explore.

Great trail, not for beginners as there are some very steep sections.We started in Church Stretton and walked over the Hills and over to The Lawley and back around the side.

Really enjoyed this walk which goes through Ironbridge. Suggest going anti-clockwise.

Lovely walk! Had good weather so the views were really nice!

Great route. First couple fields were ploughed and furrowed very deep right to the edge so I had to backtrack and find another footpath to rejoin a little further on. But all good and the walk was very pleasant.

Excellent walk but some of the slopes you need to climb are definitely not easy. Would rank this as Moderate. We started and ended from Bishops Castle, which added an extra couple of miles to the walk. Lunch at the Powis Arms in Lidbury North is highly recommended!!

it's a bit of a pull on the legs and very steep in parts and the weather can change quicker than climbing Snowdonia however...the views are very much worth it and a favourite amongst locals and tourists alike

nice quick up and down to get the heart racing. quite busy on a sunday morning.

really nice walk, we ended up going past the waterfall to the top and then joined the path further on. it gets busy but the gorgeous views are worth it. parking is £5 but if your a national trust member then it's free.

be wary of cyclists. they will appear in the most unlikely places at speed and zoned so they won't see you.

Good walk. Steep in places but great views from the top

Great walk!

some minor changes to route around the station required due to ongoing work

This is a nice walk and is quite flat other than one gentle incline towards the end so good if you struggle with hills. Recommend wearing brightly coloured clothing for the road walking as the lanes are quite narrow and bendy. We parked at the shop in Seisdon which added a bit to the distance, which using GPS came to 7.13 miles.

Park in a lay by on the A49 and head onto a public footpath, initially crossing farm land before reaching a trail. You soon find yourself at the foot of Caer Caradoc. A stiff walk up a steep section is soon rewarded with stunning panoramic views over the Shropshire Hills, classified as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. On the summit you find the remains of a Bronze or Iron Age fort. Continue down in a north easther direction, before turning west, contouring the hill back towards the A49. During the walk you will need to cross a few stiles. And unfortunately the last section runs right next to the busy A49.

Heard of the Wrekin, but never done it. Pretty easy if you follow the paths. I went ‘off road’ a bit to make it tougher. Misty and drizzly weather added to the atmosphere. Pretty easy but well worth doing. Stunning views despite the weather.

Lovely walk. Food at the pub is delightful. There are a few alternatives that mean you don�t need to walk on the road on the way back.

Very nice varied walk, ending with tour of hall gardens and sports facilities. Archery tournament was underway when we were there. Pete and Alicia, August 13th 2017

An excellent walk, full of interest. Only one unexpected problem encountered, part of the riverside walk was closed due to high water level. Found interesting diversion via Shrewsbury Abbey.

walk is well documented and the footpaths are well marked out going across the golf course which is always a bonus.

A guided walk needs one thing above all else - to be clear in the directions. This was certainly that as well as being an excellent and varied wander around Shrewsbury, the river being a dominant feature.
