Great walk and views but very steep if you climb from Cromley. I suffer with slight vertigo and didn’t like the climb. We didn’t do the steep descent to Church Stretton but the more gentle descent back to Cardington which was fine. Next time we will do the ascent that way too.

Not an easy, though fairly short walk, as it is very steep but you will be rewarded with a fantastic ridge walk and panoramic views especially of the other local hills and the Wrekin. A place of real history - look out for Caractacs' cave too (just off the summit) - not that impressive but a piece of history/folk law. A less busy walk than those found around Carding Mill Valley.

Make sure you are equipped with boots, waterproofs and a map or guide. Access in winter was via VERY muddy fields and tracks. Great views and an interesting historical connection with Caradoc / Caractacus.

The steep and windy site of a Roman fort. Southernmost ascent/descent is steeper and rougher than northern. In wet or icy weather, it's easier to walk south-to-north than vv.

Walked up here yesterday having parked near New House Farm. Followed footpath around edge of field, through gate, across stream, then brutally uphill. We’re reasonably fit nearly 50s, but this was hard work. Descended on a slightly less step path down into the valley and then back to the farm.
