Take in the fantastic views across the Shropshire Hills from Lyth Hill Countryside Park on a crisp winter's day

Although of a relatively modest height Lyth Hill provides, arguably, some of the best panoramic views of the South Shropshire hills; from The Wrekin in the East to Wenlock Edge in the South-east and the Stiperstones in the South-west.

Lyth Hill is largely grassland with areas of woodland and scrub which supports a variety of birds such as great spotted woodpecker, wood warbler and tree pipit and kestrels and buzzards are regularly found hoovering and wheeling overhead.

Historically, rope making was carried out on the site and the remains of the windmill which wound the rope is still present. Local author Mary Webb had close links to the site having bought a plot of land with her husband and built Spring Cottage it is believed much of her writing was inspired by the beautiful surroundings.
