The Wrekin added to Beaches and Seaside Resorts in West Midlands by Klokman on 20/09/2019

Free Parking at TF6 5AL (approx.) MTB, Dog friendly, gentle 1mile walk to summit up reasonable path.
Occasionally No Fly due to Paragliders.

Height: 407m (1335ft)

Excellent views of Shropshire and Wales from the top.

The Wrekin is the subject of a well-known legend in Shropshire folklore.
A giant called Gwendol Wrekin ap Shenkin ap Mynyddmawr with a grudge against the town of Shrewsbury decided to flood the town and kill all its inhabitants. So he collected a giant-sized spadeful of earth and set off towards the town. When in the vicinity of Wellington he met a cobbler returning from Shrewsbury market with a large sackful of shoes for repair. The giant asked him for directions, adding that he was going to dump his spadeful of earth in the River Severn and flood the town. "It's a very long way to Shrewsbury," replied the quick-thinking shoemaker. "Look at all these shoes I've worn out walking back from there!" The giant immediately decided to abandon his enterprise and dumped the earth on the ground beside him, where it became the Wrekin. The giant also scraped the mud off his boots, which became the smaller hill Ercall Hill nearby. Ironically Shrewsbury is subjected to flooding from the River Severn on frequent occasions naturally.
