Corndon Hill

Location: Near White Grit village - Powys - Mid Wales
Height: 513 metres (1,683 ft)
Summit Type: Grassy/Rocky/Rounded
Notable Summit Objects: Trig Point, Cairn
Range: Shropshire Hills
Despite this excellent highpoint being completely Welsh, it is an honorary member of the Shropshire Hills due to its very close proximity to the border of the county. The hill is similar in its appearance to the hills of the Long Mynd, and makes for a great walk from White Grit village. The hill top has a number of cairns, as does the summit which includes a Trig Point. The views are superb in all directions, in particular to the direct east towards the Stiperstones and south east towards Black Rhadley Hill, west across the hilly Powys countryside and north west towards the Berwyn and the Aran mountain ranges.
