Walk: The Long Mynd, Pole Bank Topograph & Trig Point 516 mtrs
Start Point: Church Stretton coach park Grid Reference: SO 456 936
Distance: 10.3 miles Ascent: 1,550 feet
Time: 5.5 hours
Weather: Bright and sunny
Comments: From the coach near the station we headed for Little Stretton before starting the steady climb through the rolling hills to reach the Long Mynd with lunch taken at Pole Cottage. A tin shed now! At Pole Bank the Topograph was able to put the wonderful views into context, right into Wales. Following the Shropshire Way along the Mynd we reached a cattle grid to descend a broad grass track down to Woodnall and the return to the Church Stretton.
