Best Hikes to Burrow Hillfort
  • Dan Hobson

    Shropshire is famous for its Iron Age hillforts and this one is regarded by many as the best example. With three entrances, as well as four sets of ramparts and ditches around the tear-shaped stronghold, it makes for a fascinating visit. With incredible panoramic views, it's actually quite surprising how little-visited this monument is. It is a leisurely climb to the summit.

  • A brilliant example of a multivallate Iron Age Fort, one of many forts along the Wales and England border. There are fine ramparts here but today in July, mid summer it is rather overgrown and it is difficult to see the grandness of it all. As Dan says, nobody seems to pay attention to here too, it not maintained, no information boards or signage. A pity as it is an easy walk and has fine views.

  • Lovely part of Shropshire to visit, good cafes and friendly pubs in the area. Never gets too busy and navigation isn't too tricky. I never fail to impress friends I take over there.
