The Wrekin is a very large hill, situated in the country of Shropshire, near the city of Shrewsbury, in central England. Its name comes from ancient Roman town .... At its peak it is 1335 feet high and on a clear day gives a stunning view over the surrounding countryside, nearby towns and villages. The local legend of how the Wrekin was formed, tells of a Welsh giant, who after becoming lost, dumped a spadeful of soil, intended to blocking the nearby River Severn, on to the ground, thus creating the hill we see today. Some of the rock formation in the world can be found here, with some dating back over an estimated 2 billion years! This shaped piece of stone is called a “Triangulation Pillar’ or a ‘Trig Point’. The Wrekin is a popular place to visit for hikers and for those who simply want to get away from it all, while enjoying the fresh....this structure is called the ‘Toposcope’ and show the distances of all the surrounding towns and visible landmarks. Sadly the low cloud has settled on the hill, so there will be no stunning views for us today I’m afraid.
Nobody heard him: the dead man But still he lay moaning I was much further out than you thought And no waving but downing
