Wilderhope Farm

Situated next to Wilderhope Manor on Wenlock Edge this National Trust low intensive farm of 270 acre livestock and arable farm is an ideal place to study food production processes and how to look after our environment as well as ourselves. Conservation and sustainability go hand in hand. Visit livestock, crops, the Manor's lake, where we can do some dipping, farm buildings, machinery and ancient meadows. There may be a chance to meet the farmer who will explain his working day and the farming year at Wilderhope Farm. There are a number of associated units of work on offer here including "The History of the Manor", "Stories from the Civil War", land use studies, and art, literacy and environmental topics. All available on discussion with the learning team at CMV. The Manor is a YHA property where schools can book to stay in top of the range accommodation. Contact Wilderhope Manor YHA direct. Please note that our teaching is provided by qualified National Trust Education Officers, supported by a trained team of experienced Learning Volunteers made up of professionals, including ex-teachers and college and university lecturers.
