Shuttles 2009 Green Living

Friday 20th February 2009

Leave your car at home and travel to Church Stretton using public transport if you can. Use the Shuttle bus service to explore hidden nature in the Shropshire Hills and have a wonderful day out. The Shuttle departs from Carding Mill Valley and Church Stretton and travels up the Burway, emerging onto the Lond Mynd plateau. It makes stops at Devil's Mouth, Shooting Box, Bridges (connection with Stiperstones or Secret Hills shuttle possible), Ratlinghope church, Duckley Nap and Jinlye before returning to Church Stretton. The top of the Long Mynd is covered in heather and bilberry creating glorious colour in late summer. Listen for the skylarks, pipits and red grouse which breed up here and watch the sky for circling buzzards and ravens. Ancient tracks and pathways criss-cross the plateau, providing walks to suit every age and ability. The National Trust, manages most of the Long Mynd, striking a delicate balance between conservation, agriculture and visitor enjoyment. For more information visit www.shropshirehillsshuttles.co.uk
