Wilderhope Youth Hostel

Stage 7: Wheathill to Wilderhope

The walk continues over the wild landscape of the Clee Hills, first Clee Burf at 510m and then Abdon Burf at 540m. These are Shropshire’s highest hills and have been the site of several aeroplane crashes. Today the many masts now help with aircraft navigation and prevent such incidents.

At New Earnstrey Park, NW of Brown Clee, the route has been changed slightly to use the road instead of boggy fields. This is between SO579878 and SO575881. OS maps may not show this change yet.

This stage ends at Wilderhope Youth Hostel, a magnificent Tudor Manor on Wenlock Edge.

You are strongly advised to take an OS map and/or a GPS to walk the route. Please note the digital OS maps will show the new Main Route from January 2019.
