Activities at Carding Mill Valley and the Shropshire Hills

A single runner running across the top of Long Mynd

Get your boots on; we've got miles of footpaths, bridleways and permissive paths to explore across the Long Mynd. You don't have to go far out of Carding Mill Valley to find some peace and tranquillity, especially when you get to the top of the hill.

Go on an adventure

Pick up an adventure trail and let the kids explore the valley. See if they can find their own route to the reservoir, up rope pulls, across streams and down hills. The idea is to get the kids exploring and using their imagination. 

Our new walk

We've come up with a new walk in Carding Mill Valley, which is a bit challenging in places, but ultimately gives you some great views.
The Pipe Walk takes in a couple of the main features in Carding Mill Valley including the reservoir and Lightspout waterfall, and it also offers great views across to Bodbury Hill.
This walk takes in one of the higher paths around Cow Ridge so it gives a nice perspective looking up Carding Mill Valley.

Walkers welcome

Church Stretton is a designated 'Walkers are Welcome' town. This guarantees great walking, spectacular scenery and warm welcomes wherever you go in the town and the surrounding countryside.
