Raby

Access

The main access and most popular footpath for the Wrekin forms part of the Shropshire Way. Car parking is available at the Forest Glen to the north of the hill (Shropshire Wildlife Trust car park and some roadside parking). Please ensure that you park safely and do not obstruct the highway.

From the South

The Wrekin can also be reached from the Raby estate by a longer walk from Little Wenlock or Ironbridge. The lanes on the south side of the Wrekin are small and quiet and good to walk or cycle – the Shropshire Way approaches the south of the Wrekin from Little Wenlock along Spout Lane.

The main path up from the Forest Glen is well surfaced and easy to follow. There are quieter public footpaths leading around the hill and a couple of permissive paths which join them. Only footpaths exist on the Wrekin and therefore cycling or horse riding can not take place although the lanes around the Wrekin provide a great space for these activities with part of the route designated as a quiet lane forming part of the Shropshire Way.
