Abdon Burf - Brown Clee Hill

After negotiating the first slope above the car parking area, the Wrekin Hill soon comes into view to the right standing alone in the distance. The walking is easy for a couple of miles, following a lower ridge looking across to the Long Mynd and other Shropshire hills. When the old Shropshire Way is joined there is another fairly easy slope which continues up to Abdon Burf.

After passing the World War Two memorial stone, the one and only stile has to be crossed. After passing the pool, a contrasting set of views appear, looking down on Burwarton Hall and Parkland. From there the walk descends to a pleasant lower walk along a bridleway to join the road just below the car parking area.

A gentle walk with outstanding views. I measured the height gain to the Trig point as 257m and the overall height gain as 318 m. The timing was spot on. Would thoroughly recommend this walk with its well defined paths which are almost all grassy except for the tarmac section through the Burwarto estate at the end.

Super walk with great views all round. Can't wait to return to do it clockwise. Kestrels and buzzards galore, making this walk really special.

A very impressive walk. Lots and lots of fantastic views for not a great amount of effort :-) Thoroughly enjoyed doing it today - I thought it was a clear day but it needs to be crystal clear to see such a vast horizon properly. Also enjoyed an excellent pint of real ale at the Fighting Cocks in Stottesdon!

What a fantastic walk this is, try and choose a nice clear day because the views are spectacular. Considering that this hill is the highest point in Shropshire its not too taxing. Highly recommended.
