If you are a keen walker then Wenlock Edge is an ideal place for either a gentle stroll or a longer more strenuous outing. There are waymarked trails from the National Trust car parks at Wilderhope Manor, Presthope and on the outskirts of Much Wenlock. These trails range from 1/2 mile to 2 &1/2 miles, are generally on good footpaths, offer panoramic views and an abundance of wildlife. A walks leaflet which compliments these walks is available from the tourist information centre in Much Wenlock and from a leaflet dispenser near the entrance to the car park on the outskirts of town.
If you like to leave the car at home it is possible to travel by bus to Much Wenlock from Shrewsbury, an easy walk out of the town leads you into the woods and onto the Edge. This is an excellent way to visit the area as a walk on the Edge can be combined with a tour of the town with its interesting history, shops, tea rooms and pubs.
