Shropshire Way 6 Coldgreen to Wilderhope

Day 6 of the Shropshire Way agains serves up a hill first thing, with the summit of Brown Clee Hill at 540m, the highest point in Shropshire. This is a proper hilly day, across high moor, so hope for decent weather. The route ends in Wilderhope Manor YH  – which has a bar, shop and cafe for you to recover and stock up. This is a National Trust owned Elizabethan manor house built in 1586

. with a rich and varied history, including it’s resident ghost. You can visit even if you’re not in the youth hostel (follow the link for more information)

The Shropshire hills are a convenient get away if you want a hilly walk but the mountains of Snowdonia and the Lakes are too far to travel for the weekend.
