The Wrekin

The Wrekin is one of Shropshire’s best known landmarks. It is a legendary hill that looks like a mountain from certain positions. From the top you can see fifteen of the surrounding counties. It’s also the inspiration for J.R.R Tolkien’s Middle Earth in the series of books – The Lord of The Rings. Living nearby Tolkien drew inspiration from the breath taking Shropshire landscape.

From Sweeney Hall Hotel to The Wrekin will take you 45 minutes by car.
