The Shropshire Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB) covers almost a quarter of Shropshire. It's a living landscape, loved by locals and visitors alike for its quality of environment, rich history, and for walking, relaxation and inspiration.
This website will help you to discover what’s special about the Shropshire Hills, ideas for enjoying and exploring, and the work being carried out to look after the AONB and promote its qualities.
Farming in Protected Landscapes Programme
This is a new Defra funding programme from July 2021 to April 2024 aimed at farmers and land managers in England’s Protected Landscapes (AONBs and National Parks).
The AONB Partnership is providing support and administering the programme locally. Farmers and land managers can apply for grants for projects to provide benefits to climate, nature, people and place on land in the Shropshire Hills AONB.
- Tuesday 10th August, 7pm – 8.30pm: for farmers & land managers
- Tuesday 24th August, 2pm – 3.30pm: for land agents & advisers
These will include a short presentation on the Farming in Protected Landscapes programme followed by a Questions & Answers session.
