Welcome to the
Shropshire Six Summits website
The Shropshire Six Summits is an annual walking event that is organised by members of the West Midlands Fire Service Walking and Mountaineering Club.
The walk covers the summits of Corndon Hill, Stipperstones, Long Mynd, Caer Caradoc, Brown Clee and Titterstone Clee.
Total height ascended 6500ft (2200m)
over approximately 36 miles (58Km).
Normally taking place on the second Saturday in June
Corndon Hill lies a mile across the Montgomery border, in Powys, Wales.
But it is inseparable from the Shropshire Hill massif as it is
surrounded on three sides by the county of Shropshire.
Corndon Hill is often used as a launch site by paragliders
The Stiperstones ridge is a good place to view the upland landscape of the Shropshire hills, particularly the Long Mynd to the
East, and also gives extensive views towards the North Shropshire
plain and the hills of Mid Wales.
The Long Mynd is a heath and moor land plateau that forms part of the Shropshire Hills in Shropshire. The high ground, which is designated as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, lies between the Stiperstones range to the west and the Stretton
Hills and Wenlock Edge to the east. Much of it is owned and managed by the National Trust.
Caer Caradoc (Welsh - Caer Caradog)
is a hill in the English
county of Shropshire.
It overlooks the town of Church Stretton and the village of all Stretton and offers panoramic views
to the north towards The Wrekin.
It is the highest point on a high, narrow, northeast–southwest "whaleback ridge", sometimes called a hogsback ridge.
Brown Clee Hill lies five miles north of its sister and neighbour, Titterstone Clee Hill. The highest peak of the hill is
Abdon Burf, at 540 metres high with
Clee Burf at 510m.
The eastern expanse of the hill is in possession of the Burwarton Estate under ownership of Viscount Boyne, whilst the western fringes of the hill are owned by various private land owners and the parish of Clee St. Margaret.
Titterstone Clee Hill
Titterstone Clee is the third-highest hill in Shropshire, beaten only by the nearby Brown Clee Hill (540 m) and Stiperstones (536 m). Much of the higher part of the hill is common land, used for the grazing of sheep, air traffic control services and both working and disused quarries. The summit of Titterstone Clee is bleak, treeless and shaped by decades of quarrying.
