Corbet Wood and Clive

There’s a low sandstone ridge north of Shrewsbury, with attractive woodlands and interesting paved and bedrock tracks. The stone here has been quarried for many years – signs warn walkers to “beware of old quarries”… We’ll follow the lower-level paths from the car park at Corbet Wood, past Grinshill to Clive, then return via the highest point, which is a fine rocky viewpoint for the hills to the south, but hardly what one would call a summit (192m, or about 630ft above sea level). It’s a pleasant walk on an afternoon when, despite the grey skies, there’s spring in the air.

    Yet another lovely series Geoff~ never explored this area but certainly looks worth doing so from all your fine photos.

  2. Thanks Val – Shropshire north of the Severn is different… Mostly flat / low lying but with one or two little rocky places that have a slightly northern feel to them.
