Westhope and Wenlock Edge

Woodland wandering… A five-mile circuit at the south-western end of the Edge, from the car park at Harton Hollow, down the lane to Westhope, onwards along Hope Dale until we’re below the tower of Flounders’ Folly, then up the farm lane (away from the folly) to the woodland of the westernmost edge. The tiny car park is busy, but apart from some particularly loud-voiced walkers just behind us (we decided to let them go ahead…), it’s very peaceful in Hope Dale. It’s not quite so quiet through the woodlands – there’s the rumble of traffic on the unseen A49 below,  less than a mile away at first. By the time we’re at the northern end of this most-enjoyable stretch, it’s quiet again.
