Family fun this summer

There's so much to see and do at our special places in and around Shropshire this summer.

Why not have a swim in the reservoir at Carding Mill Valley, clamber up the tree hide in the woods at Moseley Old Hall or explore the the World War I trench at Powis Castle and Garden - these are just some of the experiences on offer.

Here's some inspiration for your visits...
