What better way to understand our history and to see a few of our hidden treasures than to enjoy a stroll though this beautiful town. The whole walk will take you at least an hour and you should allow more time if you intend to visit attractions on the way.

A printed leaflet "Wenlock Olympian Trail" is also available at Visitor Information.

The walk starts on Station Road near to the coach park. Stand and look at the old railway station (now disused and converted into a private dwelling).
2. Linden Field & The Windmill
To your left of the old railway station you will see some gates, pass through them and you will be on Linden Field.
3. Wenlock Priory
Cross the line and walk up the steps opposite, go down the path until you reach the tarmac lane and turn right.
4. Holy Trinity Church
As you walk alongside The Priory, you will approach a stone tower which was once part of the complex.
5. Church WalkLook to your right and you will see an Optician’s office and to the right a brick house with a brass plaque on it.
6. St Milburga's WellBear left down the lane in front of you and after a few paces you will see on your right St Milburga’s well.
7. The SquareAfter looking at the interesting cottages across the street and the Georgian style houses on your left, cross the street and walk to the right towards the centre of town.
8. The GuildhallYou now have come full circle and have a front view of The Guildhall (16th century). The lower section is still used as a market.
9. Much Wenlock MuseumDirectly across the street from the Guildhall is the museum which displays local memorabilia, geological history and selected artifacts from Wenlock Olympian Society.
10. High StreetAs you walk up the street look above the shops and look in the windows. The town once did a study on the use of all the shops in town and made a time line plaque for each shop. Some can still be found in the shop windows.
