Additional Services

Victorian Tale

The tale of how Reverend Carr miraculously survived a night on the hills in the worst snowstorm of the 1800's includes details of human and environmental geography that heighten the enjoyment of this lovely part of the Shropshire countryside also gives insight into historical aspects of the local community. The handling of the Victorian artefacts can make the session relevant to any history topic. A fun way to introduce the area before a visit. About 1 hour 15 mins.

Alternatively this can be given during a visit to the valley particularly to substitute for an afternoon activity where morning weather has proved inclement.


We can now prepare CDs with folders of photographs of each service to prepare students for what they will be doing, along with pictures of the life of the stream, threats to the hills, management of and many beautiful photographs of landscape, flora and fauna to follow up their work.

A CD containing Wenlock Edge services covering the geology and Wilderhope Manor and Farm is also now available. Both CDs are updated each year. Please specify the content required when ordering by using our "Booking Form"
