Much Wenlock is a small town and a few minutes' walk brings you to the foot of a cultivated hill. A number of arable fields are crossed before an old green lane between hedges leads north to a B road. This is followed for 10-15 minutes to some old limekilns on National Trust property. From here there is a short climb to the top of Wenlock Edge, celebrated by the famous composer Ralph Vaughn Williams. By keeping to a quarry edge, views can be had for some distance before another old trackway is followed down into the town.
