Pleasant woodland walk taking in Maddock's Hill, The Ercall and Lawrence's Hill, mostly using deviations from the Red Route. A lot of unmapped paths made for some confusion at times. If approaching Maddock's from the NNE the faint path on the forest side of the boundary fence is ok but requires quite a bit of stooping under low branches. The pasture side is easier but requires two bwf crossings.milimana13/05/2019

With TJB. From track to west via a much smaller but good track. After Lawrence's Hill and then onto Ercall Wood.trimarc206/09/2017
Followed large track from W to its high point, then L through metal gate. Across pasture to top, then step over bwf to bank overlooking steep slope. Thought field side of fence by reinforced post was higher.Aye Jimmy01/09/2017
Fp from nw from road after completing The Ercall and Lawrence's Hill. After 500 ms leave path into wood and/or open pasture for gentle walk up to top. Still very smelly from the muck spreading farmer. Or is it me. It certainly was following me around.Campbell Singer23/08/2017
Parked on road to east and followed FP that goes northeast and to the west side of the old quarry, once alongside the golf course a small path goes to the quarry edge and then around it. An indistinct path was then followed southwest through the trees to the HP.PeterD18/04/2017

From NW off the little wenlock road. Very ancient track leads almost all the way. The last section of track has gone to seed but easy across pasture. 4 deer disturbed. Top is in trees and nettles.. tegretted that choice to wear shorts. Lovely view toward Stretton hills.stig_nest12/06/2016

Up old road running SE from Lane, then up SE edge of quarry. Faint track up the woodland got very overgrown at top. Much easier to descend down field.GordonAdshead01/08/2015
Parked where the track leaves the road to the west. You have to pass below the first ridge and then ascend the one that runs parallel to it. I made it 647088. The top is mostly brambles and nettles.clivevilla20/06/2015
Point of prominence for my current residence. Shocking that I've been here 18 months and hadn't made the effort before. Scratty bit of woodland at the edge of a field...Jim T17/04/2015
A steep climb up from the car park to Lawrence's Hill then around the quarry edge then across the edge of the golf course to explore Maddock's Hill.Dugswell225/03/2015
Veg a bit of problem at this time of the year.summitsup30/08/2013
Nice 4 mile circular walk from The Wrekin car park, made a change from trekking up The Wrekin ! Apart from the golf course only passed one other person :-) (spent a very cold night up here in the 70's during a ham radio contest with G3ZME )heavyhorses25/05/2013
