I knew there were hills in Shropshire – I had heard of The Long Mynd, The Wrekin and Wenlock Edge – but that was about it. This trip put that right, showing me three sets of unusual hills with very different feels to them. I spent five days wandering from pub to pub (Church Stretton to Bridges to Stiperstones to Wentnor and back to Church Stretton). I found four spots worth telling you about and have constructed four shortish trails from ground I actually covered but not necessarily in the order presented. I trust all this qualifies them as “trails less trodden”.
