Cardington and the Battle Stones

Back to the hills! A beautiful sunny afternoon again. The air’s cool but there’s no wind – it’s great to be out on the hills near Church Stretton, on a circular walk from Cardington. We follow the usual route through Willstone towards Caer Caradoc, but instead of continuing towards that popular summit, we turn to the left and head for the rocky turret of the Battle Stones on the edge of Willstone Hill. The views towards to north Shropshire plain are extensive, so it’s a good place for chocolate. Completing the circle (it’s more like a rectangle), we’ll visit the Sharpstones – an unlikely little rocky ridge in a field – and look back on our route.
