The route

The longest of the Shropshire Hills walks. This is a ten mile circular walk from Shropshire Hills Discovery Centre, including some steep climbs rewarded with stunning viewpoints vistas. You will make your way across lovely wooded slopes and alongside gently flowing riverside. Enjoy the views and wildlife which changes throughout the seasons.

Admire the views from Wart Hill

Wart Hill is a distinctive conical shape sticking out 120ft (40m) above the surrounding countryside and is crowned by the ring of an Iron Age hill fort. From the top you can see the Stiperstones and Corndon to the northwest peeping out from behind the southern end of the Long Mynd and Brown Clee and Titterstone Clee in the east.

Sibdon Castle

You will notice a scattering of large parkland trees around Sibdon Castle. This is typical of the estate design and planting of the 18th century. The castle was once owned by the Norman lord Picot de Saye having been granted the parish by William the Conqueror.
