Carding Mill Valley and the Long Mynd offer breathtaking views across Shropshire, Cheshire and the Black Mountains.
The Long Mynd is an area of historic upland heath, created when some of Britain’s oldest rocks were pushed to the surface along the Church Stretton fault. The ancient landscape has been shaped by human activity for thousands of years, and there are scattered archaeological remains from the Bronze Age, Iron Age and Medieval times.
The area is within a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and a Site of Special Scientific Interest as it contains a number of habitats supporting wildlife and plants. Heather, bilberry and gorse cover much of the hilltop and the streams and bogs of the sheltered valleys are home to birds of prey, plants and insects.
There are miles of paths for walkers and a network of bridleways, which are ideal for both horse riders and cyclists. Whether you take a short stroll through Carding Mill Valley or a more rugged route to the top of the hill, there are breathtaking views of beautiful countryside. There is a tea-room and gift shop at the Chalet Pavilion in Carding Mill Valley.
A busy programme of events and activities is held at Carding Mill Valley throughout the year
