Out and about on Wenlock Edge

I managed to capture a new view of Brown Clee - Shropshire's tallest peak - while exploring Wenlock Edge.

Out and about on Wenlock Edge

I clocked up more than 10 miles as I walked along some of the footpaths on this narrow limestone escarpment, which runs from Craven Arms to Ironbridge.

Wenlock Edge boasts a mix of flower-rich grasslands and ancient woodland, along with internationally important sites for geology.

There is also evidence of previous industrial use, with old quarries and lime kilns along the way.

I spent the afternoon and evening up there, and the only people I came across were a retired couple who were hiking the entire length of the Shropshire Way.

They told me they were camping overnight and heading to Ironbridge the following day. What a great way to explore Shropshire!
