Geocache Description:


A Picturesque circular walk of 33 traditional caches and a Bonus starting from Wentnor and taking in the hamlets of Norbury & Whitcot.

Wentnor View

The walk has some astounding views of the longmynd and Shropshire hills, the route is approximately 5½ miles and should take around 4-5 hours depending on walking pace and speed of finds, some parts involve a steady ascent to both Upper Gravenor via the disused quarry & the return to Wentnor.

The attractive village of Wentnor lies on a ridge to the west of the Long Mynd, with good views in all directions, it dates back to Saxon times. The church of St. Michael and All Angels is at one end of the ridge, and the views towards the west from the churchyard are particularly spectacular.

Wentnor Church

Towards the end of the walk the footpath takes you through the churchyard where you could discover Carved into an exterior corner of the church is an inverted 'face'. Inside the church is a tombstone known as the Hurricane Tombstone - this is in memory of a family who lost their lives in the nearby hamlet of Asterton during a hurricane in 1772.

Opposite the church a cottage - now known as White Horse Cottage, was once the local police station.
