Reviews

Covering as much as 2,000 hectares (4,942 acres) of heather-covered hills with stunning views of the Shropshire Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, the Long Mynd is an important place for wildlife, geology and archaeology. Carding Mill Valley once drew Victorian day-trippers
looking for ‘Little Switzerland’ – complete with ‘England’s Little Niagara’ – and it’s still drawing the crowds today.

Managed by the National Trust since 1965, when the land was overgrazed and degraded, Carding Mill Valley and the Long Mynd have seen a return to healthy heathland. Species that were in decline now abound, and this guidebook will show you where and when to find them.

Richly illustrated throughout and with specially commissioned artwork, this guidebook will briefly relate the history of the place before expounding the year-round delights of Carding Mill Valley and the Long Mynd, the wildlife hotspots, where you can dip your feet, stretch your legs, expand your lungs and refresh your soul.
