A NATIONAL TRUST WOOD
90.17 ha (222.81 acres)
Wenlock Edge is a limestone escarpment near Much Wenlock, which is a site of special scientific interest, set in the Shropshire Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The Edge offers superb views of the Shropshire countryside. The deciduous woodland which runs along it covers much of the steep slopes of the escarpment and in parts it is very well preserved. The ancient woodlands have excellent walks and are popular for cycling and riding. The Edge contains many interesting features such as Flounder's Folly, Wilderhope Manor and Shipton Hall and waymarked walks such as the Shropshire Way and bridleways such as the Jack Mytton Way. Presthope and Wenlock Edge car parks are available. There is also a bus service, the "Wenlock Wanderer", which connects the towns of Much Wenlock and Church Stretton, and operates mostly along the B4371 which runs along the Edge.
