Wenlock Edge

19 miles (31 km)

Wenlock Edge runs from Craven Armsto Much Wenlock, in the Shropshire Hills AONB. This walk follows the 19mi (31km) limestone escarpment using the footpaths of the Shropshire Way and the Jack Mytton Way long distance routes.
The walk begins in the town of Craven Arms, near to the train station. You then head to the 400-million-year-old limestone escarpment following the pretty Quinny Brook out of the town. The walk passes ancient woodland, the 19th century Flounders' Folly and the Elizabethan Wilderhope Manor. There are some challenging climbs on the walk but you are rewarded with splendid views over the Shropshire Hills and beyond. The walk finishes in the interesting town of Much Wenlock where you will find Wenlock Priory - a ruined 12th centurymonastery with a lovely topiary garden.
If you'd like to continue your walking in the area then the Long Mynd, Caer Caradoc Hill and the beautiful Carding Mill Valley are all nearby.
