It is a beautiful view from the top and well worth the walk. Not easy for wheelchairs unless you have a super fit helper.

This wonderful historical site offers great views across the Marches and has much to interest you. Walking around the site you can see what a huge project it was to build and must have been a bustling community a thousand years ago. Worth a visit.

An interesting historical sight, good display boards illustrating and explaining its roots. Strolling around you get great views across Shropshire to the Wrekin and beyond

Has historic significance, good views from the top. Local important earthworks. Spoilt by too many dog walkers, parking for 3-4 cars. Poor information board.
