Wenlcock Edge

UK»England»Shropshire»Wenlcock Edge

Wenlcock Edge is an area rather than a place, not only one of the best known geological sites in Shropshire, but also one of the most famous in the world. It is a scarp of Silurian limestone which runs for over 30 kilometres from Craven Arms to Much Wenlock. The Scarp face of the edge can be well appreciated from the picnic site and car park two and a half kilometres east of Westhope on a lane running along the southern slope of Wenlock Edge. There are also various footpaths running along the edge that can be accessed at various points. The viewpoint at SJ 573968 on the B4371 also provides access to rock exposures at Ippikins Rock, a National Trust landmark.
