Walking through the age of stone, iron and lead in Shropshire

A late burst of summer sunshine and warmth greeted the six intrepid walkers for a robust walk on the border with Wales.  We were led through the lead mining heritage of the Stiperstones, to the neolithic landscape of Mitchell's fold and Corndon Hill, and back again through high fields and woods. The summit of Corndon Hill was left for another day, but spectacular views were still afforded as we circumnavigated its southern side. Some were less than impressed with the remains of the 3500 year old stone circle at Mitchell's Fold (Shropshire's Stonehenge), especially after being able to walk along the high ridge of Stapeley Hill for several miles but all were pleased to be out in the fresh air in this tranquil part of the West Midlands. It lifted the spirits to come across a jovial Shropshire farmer mending a stile and wishing us well on our way.
