Friday 6 June 2014. After yesterday’s exertions, I decided on something a little easier with a circuit of Brown Clee Hill. It was 6.8 miles with 1,400ft of ascent. There was a steady climb of just 200ft at the start of the walk which opened up the views to the north with “The Wrekin” visible some 12 miles away. After the initial climb there was a farily level track through woodland and then on the more open north-western side from where “The Stiperstones” were just visible 15 miles away.
The hard work of the day began with a steep 400ft climb to the top of Brown Clee Hill, the highest point in Shropshire at 1,772ft. I’ve been here before, probably on my first visit to the area a few years back. From here it was mainly downhill back to the car. I only saw 3 other walkers today and only 6 yesterday so the area isn’t overcrowded.
