This is a wonderful hill. In clear weather, particularly in winter when it's clear, you can see from Snowdonia to the Brecon Beacons and the Malverns to the Cotswolds. You can drive up it to near the top, on a single track road, but there...More

Starting from Carding Mill it's a steady climb up to the top. Best to wear your walking boots and maybe use a stick. The NT supply leaflets with walks on, giving you more choice. Certainly it's a popular place, so we'll worth going!

The Long Mynd part of the Shropshire Hills is a magical place to walk and ride. The walk up from Church Stretton is okay for this 70+ year old with a couple of puff stops. On a clear day the views from Pole Bank are...More

Second time mountain biking up at Long Mynd - the uphills test your fitness on the bike, but it's worth it for the variety of different tracks coming down - like a roller coaster that you're (kind of) in control of - great for adrenaline...More

Lived near here 30yrs ago, walked on here regularly, was so much easier then! Absolutely stunning hill & the views are just incredible. Not easy walk in places but so worth it.

This is a stunning place - so much to explore especially if you go into some of the valleys and batches - Shropshire's beauty at its best and something for all ages and walking abilities. You don't know Shropshire if you have not been here...More

We went for a walk to the Pole Bank viewpoint on the Saturday of the Easter weekend. We followed the trail up past Lightspout Waterfall (requires some minor clambering) and continued up to Shooting Box. By the time we got there it was snowy/slushy underfoot...More
