3. The Wrekin, Shropshire
One of the highest peaks in the Midlands is also one of the most rewarding to walk up if you’re looking for a bit of a longer ramble. Start from the village of Cluddley and there’s a bit of road walking before you get into the woods around The Wrekin. The summit is well sign-posted and there are various footpaths to choose from. Once at the top, there are great views across Staffordshire and the Black Country. Allow three to four hours to get up there.
