Landscapes and nature reserves in the Shropshire Hills
The summits of the Shropshire Hills may not be enormously high, nor particularly mountainous. But because they boast many individual tops, that serve as superb viewpoints for the surrounding areas including Ludlow.
Many of these summits have special qualities that were recognised by people a long time ago and the intriguing remains of stone circles and Bronze and Iron Age forts bear witness to this.
The best way, and indeed often the only, way to visit these viewpoints is on foot – you’ll find suggested routes to these on our Walking pages and more details about historic and prehistoric sites on our Heritage pages.
Many of these viewpoints in the Shropshire Hills are also protected landscapes, including Nature Reserves, managed by Natural England or Shropshire Wildlife Trust.
You’ll find information about walking routes to some of these Reserves on our Walking pages.
