Caer Caradoc – a Marilyn - is a well-documented hill walk which offers fine panoramic views in every direction, although I’m not sure that all will be that enthusiastic about clear day views of the high-rise buildings of Birmingham! Views of the hills of north-east Wales to the north, the Malvern Hills to the south-east, plus the Black Mountains and peaks of the Brecon Beacons to the south would be much more welcome. You should certainly enjoy good views of the nearby Long Mynd and Wenlock Edge, which we will tackle on Saturday and Sunday respectively.
