Stretton Skyline Walk


31 km / 19 miles
The Stretton Skyline Walk is a challenging 20-mile circuit around the hills that form the skyline of the Shropshire town of Church Stretton. It takes in the ridges on both sides of the Stretton Gap that follows a geological faultline, the Stretton Fault. The itinerary takes in the Long Mynd, Ragleth Hill, the Hope Bowdler Hills, Caer Caradoc and The Lawley.

This walk is based on an old runners' route and complements the Shropshire Way that does not include these well-known hills. The 2019 Cicerone guide for the Shropshire Way listed below includes a description of this route.
