Try one of these beautiful walks at Carding Mill Valley

We've got miles of footpaths, bridleways and permissive paths to explore across the Long Mynd. There are walks available for all abilities and time scales, so you can chose to go on a short walk up to the reservoir or a much longer walk to the highest point on the hill and back. Whichever you chose you are guaranteed some good scenery. The walks suggested here are recommended by the staff, as they take in the key features of the hill and then offer up some beautiful views along the way.
