After seeing this ridge the previous day we decided that it had to be walked before moving on to Ironbridge. The early part of the walk was quite pleasant but the star was the Caer Caradoc Hill. Walking south from Little Caradoc there was a very pleasant green path with excellent views all around.
Moving on to Ironbridge we decided on a quick trip up The Wrekin where an Iron Age Hill Fort used to sit on the summit.
