All Around The Wrekin

The 'Discovering Wellington' Project Presents

The Wrekin

The Wrekin is one of the Midlands most famous
natural landmarks and a source of pride and
inspiration to generations of Salopians. The hill is
a scheduled ancient monument and part of an Area
of Outstanding Natural Beauty with at least 3000
years of human history behind it, whose creation
pre-dates life on Earth itself. Over the course
of many centuries, The Wrekin has withstood
feuding Celtic tribes, pillaging Roman invaders,
tyrannical medieval monarchs and the ravages of
the Industrial Revolution.
