A better outlook
The photo below shows the Wrekin viewpoint on Wenlock Edge. From here it is possible to look out through the trees towards the Wrekin, an iconic stand alone hill to the North-East of the Edge.
As you can see it has become a little overgrown recently, so today was the day something was done about it. Its amazing the difference that can be made in a couple of hours with a chainsaw and a couple of tanks of fuel.
The view is now restored but unfortunately i couldn't do anything about the weather which was deteriorating, as was the light, which is why the photo is so bad! This view can now be enjoyed by people walking the path along the top of Lea Quarry.
