Shropshire Hills

Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty

What's Happening


Please bear with us as we continue to add content and links to our new website over the coming months.

The Shropshire Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty is one of Britain's finest landscapes.  The limestone escarpment of Wenlock Edge, the rugged volcanic rocks of Caer Caradoc and the rounded sandstones of the Clun Forest have shaped its character, where no single feature or hill dominates. 

This patchwork landscape includes the wide-open spaces of the Long Mynd, peaceful river valleys such as the Clun and the Onny, the craggy Stiperstones and Clee hills, and the wooded beauty of Wenlock Edge and the Wrekin.

  It's a living landscape, loved by locals and visitors alike for its quality of environment and rich heritage, and for walking, relaxation and inspiration.
