Walked around the hill, far reaching views across Shrewsbury. Lots of dogs having fun. The Cafe is under new ownership with fab homemade soup, delicious sandwiches and great service. Looked good for families with young children too.

Twice visited this wonderful spot whilst staying in Shrewsbury - both time with dogs. Walked in the snow and what a beautiful place it was. The view point is wonderful with amazing views (surprisingly!).
