Explore Haughmond Hill and follow in the footsteps of history. Follow the trails out to the front of the hill for commanding views across the River Severn and Shrewsbury to the South Shropshire and Welsh hills beyond. Discover the Iron Age enclosure or visit the viewing platform over the quarry; a must for any budding geologists or anyone who likes dumper trucks!
Dating from about 500BC, Bury Ditches is home to one of the best-preserved hill forts in the country! Located near the town of Clun in the Shropshire Hills Area of Natural Beauty, Bury Ditches isn't short of stunning views, ancient history and blood-pumping walks.
The climb up to the hill fort is steep but the views are worth it!
Visitors looking for a level walk can follow the forest road from the car park, past the barrier to a bench and a view.
Hopton Woods is the home of mountain biking in Shropshire. Come and test yourself out on the warm-up loop before heading into the wood on our harder trails.
All the trails at Hopton are largely unsurfaced, so the way they ride changes according to the weather and the season. Please ride within your ability (and that of your bike) and with appropriate safety gear.
Come and escape in Mortimer Forest! Straddling the Shropshire and Herefordshire border this thousand hectare forest is a perfect place for some breathing space.
Although originally made up of ancient royal chases and deer parks, the forest we see today was largely planted by the Forestry Commission in the 1920s. It was named after the Mortimer Family, Norman Lords who held power over the region for some 300 years.
