Beautiful 10.3 mile 2995ft of ascent walk from NT car park at Carding Mill Valley m(free for members - alternatively £4 per day in Church Stretton centre). Carding Mill Valley taking the east fork following the Jack Myton Way, Pole Bank, descent to Little Stretton along the ridge and easily bagging Grindle and Callow along the way, then Ragleth Hill and return through Church Stretton. This route includes a significant part of the Stretton Skyline Walk. After a coffee break at the NT cafe took the car to the car perk near Yearlet for a pleasant and easy ascent of the final hill within the area encompassed by this circuit.ijpowell27/05/2021

28/12/1996: visited on way up Long Mynd(qv). My logbook refers to 'Cross Dyke Tumuli' so today's walk ensured I have really visited the summit. On way down from Pole Bank to Little Stretton, also going over Callow, with Pete. HP a slightly uninspiring spot amongst marvellous scenerypwheeler26/09/2020

Beautiful sunny day with GFE - drove up in Dr Watson. 18km circular walk from Shooting Box car parkFionalevey16/05/2020
Very icy roads on the steep drive up onto the Long Mynd. Set off before the sun was up on a glorious morning. Not many of those recently. Parked at the cp next to the small wood. Initially mistook Grindle for Callow but no problem as I was doing both. Good grassy paths all of the way. Pretty ponies enjoying some sunshine at last.Campbell Singer29/11/2019
Walk up from Church Stretton on a nice late summer day, via The Owlets and Rudges. Small Batch valley is pleasant to walk above and the Bronze Age cairns just off the summit are decent. The summit itself gives fine views especially towards Caer Caradoc. Back down the same way.thesweetcheat14/09/2019
Clockwise circular route from Watling Street, Church Stretton, via Ragleth Hill, Little Stretton and Callow. Took smaller track for a fairly steep but short ascent, shared the summit with the local horses before descending down the opposite side of the hill and the following a stream to return back to Small Batch Caravan & Camping site from the opposite approach to ascent.muzza216/02/2019

After Pole Bank. A wide track cut in the heather on the north flank gives the easiest access to cairn through very deep heather.mick07/08/2016

Very limited parking in Little Stretton (alongside the river). Perhaps room for five or six cars at the most. From here there is an excellent, mostly stoned, path to the summit. Easy walking. 40 minutes return.moorsman21/04/2016
Large cairn with survey rivet set in concrete block on SE side. Fine views, lots of heather.RichardM03/02/2016

Pleasant round of Devil's Mouth, Pole Bank, Round Hill, Grindle and Callow with my girlfriend. Decent size cairn on top. Quite rough heather and only a few thin trods up from Barrister's Plain.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
