Jutting high above the surrounding landscape, Wenlock Edge is already imposing even before you enter the ancient woodland on its flanks. Creeping through the gnarled and twisted tree trunks, it’s easy to imagine that you might come across the ghosts of Ippikin, a 13th-century highwayman who made his home in the woods. Or maybe you’ll meet Major Smallman, who galloped his horse off the Edge to escape capture during the English Civil War. He survived the 200 foot drop, but his spirit is said to have returned here after he died. If you dare to walk here over Hallowe'en you could even encounter some real ghosts (though they might look suspiciously like some of our volunteers).
