From Wenlock Edge.jpg

Wenlock Edge is a 24 km (15 mi) long limestone escarpment created 400 million years ago when Shropshire could be found just south of the equator and boasted a Caribbean type of environment. It is roughly 330 metres high (above sea level). Its ancient woodlands have excellent walks and are popular for cycling and riding. There are many fossils hidden in the area's rocks including ancient corals, crinoids and trilobites.

This is the view in a northerly direction - the mid-frame buzzard was a gift!
