Conservation work at Carding Mill Valley and the Long Mynd

We have a fantastic team of staff and volunteers here working to improve the condition of the hill. This site is a heavily managed landscape, so we have to look after the heather, stop the encroachment of invasive species, maintain paths, dig out ponds and loads more. We are also involved in a landscape-scale project beyond the Long Mynd called Stepping Stones.
