Breidden Hills (Rodney's Pillar) and Middletown Hill Walk

WalkExplorer

The Breidden Hills rise abruptly out of the Severn Plain and are most often viewed by walkers on Offa's Dyke National Trail. They are very dramatic in form and any ascent is steep, but their isolation make them among the most rewarding viewpoints that you could find. On the other hand the going underfoot is easy with two notable, if short, sections on the route that I have chosen. The nearest town is Welshpool in Powys but the walk wanders happily in and out of south Shropshire. In recent years extensive signposting and footpath work by both authorities has made life much easier for walkers, but the walk is characterised by a number of short, steep climbs.

Try the Breidden Hills (Rodney's Pillar) and Middletown Hill walk out on the FREE WalkExplorer app for iPhone. This walk will be on the Android app soon.
