  • A walk around the Ercall and The Wrekin. The Royal Geographical Society, as part of its Discovering Britain series, have documented a walk around the Ercall and the Wrekin. The 8 mile walk is a circuit of The Wrekin and surrounding area and tells the story of the mountain and its surrounding area including its geological diversity, ecological diversity, prehistoric features and human activities over the centuries. The walk was created by local historian George Evans with a little help from his son, Paul. It is a self-guided walk presented in both audio format (with commentary by George and Paul) and written format. Both can be downloaded for free from the Discovering Britain website.
