Starting in the Bronze Age, the Cornovii tribe of the Celts used the hill as a hill fort, only giving it up with the Roman invasion of the 1st Century. Much was done to explore, excavate, study and preserve the quite spectacular ruins on the site, which, at a time when such ruins were much in vogue, had been painted by the likes of Paul Sandby and sketched by TurnerJohn Sell Cotman, Ruskin and others. A beacon was originally erected on the Wrekin during the Second World War to warn aircraft, and was kept in operation until NPG x

While everyone who visited sang the praises of Catherine, Charles was the backbone. So he collected a giant-sized spadeful of earth and set off towards the town. Influenced not only by Viollet-le-Duc but also by Philip WebbWilliam Morris and Ruskin, he sharply criticised those who treated their inherited properties in a cavalier manner, and campaigned on behalf of other imperilled buildings as well as taking scrupulous care of his own. It now belongs to the National Trust. Follow this back to the start near the small reservoir at the foot of Lawrence Hill, the third of the named Wrekin foothills.

At the top of the main mast is a beacon which emits a red pulse of light every few seconds at night. Two views of Wenlock Abbey infrom engravings after Paul Sandby's drawings. The amount of inclement weather in the area can also be said to be predicted by the visibility of the Wrekin. And if you can't see the Wrekin, it's already raining. It is known locally as the "Wrekin Beacon", and is visible for many miles around. Dropping down off the hill, you descend through the trees of AE Housman's "forest-fleeced" Wrekin, past a cottage to return to Ercall Lane.
