Part of a post-lockdown walk with Lindsey on a hot sunny day. Parked in Little Stretton at SO439920 near Small Batch campsite (which was closed due to the pandemic). Followed the gravel farm track to the coll at SO430922. From there we walked up to the summit of Callow and back. We then followed the farm track on to Cross Dyke at SO425928 then descended steeply to Ashes Hollow on a narrow path. We then walked out alongside the stream back to the car - a very beautiful valley and virtually deserted.Skip31/05/2020

With Jo, circular walk from Carding Mill Valley: JMW and SW to Long Mynd, then across Round Hill to Grindle, then onto Callow, returning via footpaths from Little Stretton. Weather; generally sunny with a cool breeze, good visibility.amblerbob16/10/2016
Very limited parking alongside the river in Little Stretton (five or six cars only). If combining this with Grindle do the other one first. This allows you to have a gentle climb up, see the paths going up Callow as you approach and do the steeper side in descent rather than in ascent.moorsman21/04/2016
A loop from Ch.stn. via hazler and ragleth hill.. about turn here rather than head further up the Mynd in fading light. Another suoerb viewpoint. Hard to believe this spot is higher than Ragleth hill. Cairn of sorts on summit.stig_nest25/02/2016
Slightly higher ground to W of small cairn. Grassy hill top dotted with clumps of gorse.RichardM03/02/2016

Last top on a lovely round of Devil's Mouth, Pole Bank, Round Hill, Grindle and Callow with my girlfriend. Descending from Grindle, this hill looked quite sizeable but was a lot easier on the ground. A fine hill with beautiful views of the area.Jake99414/02/2015
Parked at Carding Mill Valley, walked up to Little Spout waterfall, paths where just ice so turned around and walked up the Jack Mytton Way, along the snow covered top to Pole Bank, hadn't been on Pole Bank since 2006, walked back down via the new hills Grindle and Callow both with cairns on top and walked across nice field paths back to the car park. Very nice 9.5 mile walk, very underrated area.DanTrig09/02/2015
With Mum from All Stretton bunkhouse: Long Mynd, Callow, Ragleth, Hazler, Hope Bowdler, Caer Caradoc hills. Cold and clear with great views and huge variety.Mark Jackson30/12/2014
Walked up from Small Batch camp site on the way to Pole Bank. Steep ascent from due E. Pile of stones at SO 43140 91923 which might not be the summit as that seems to be more to the W at SO 43111 91922. Both gave me 414m on GPS.jonglew20/07/2014
