Hop on the bus and get out in the hills
This shuttle bus service is a great way to get out exploring across the Long Mynd and Stiperstones. Traveling this way gives you a much greater appreciation of this fantastic heathland landscape managed by the National Trust and Natural England.
The Long Mynd and Stiperstones Shuttle Bus is open for business again from 15 April 2017 and is running on the following dates:
Easter weekend 15 - 17 April
May: Saturdays, Sundays and Bank Holiday Mondays
1 July - 1 October: Saturdays, Sundays and Bank Holiday Mondays
This fantastic service picks up in Carding Mill Valley and Church Stretton, traveling across the Long Mynd to the Stiperstones, via Bridges on the way. Once at Stiperstones you can visit the Bog Centre or Snailbeach mine.
Using the bus is a really good way of seeing more of the hills if you've got limited time or if you find you just need a lift back to Carding Mill Valley. It's even useful if you want to head to Bridges for a pub lunch and you don't want to walk back! This way you can sit back, relax and take in the views.
Both Long Mynd and Stiperstones are SSSIs for their geology, ecology and archaeology. Both sites are upland heathland, this delicate habitat is managed by the National Trust and Natural England both organisations aiming to conserve and protect these special places.
