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 natural geography that heighten the enjoyment of this lovely part of the Shropshire countryside and gives insight into historical aspects of the local community. The handling of the Victorian artefacts can make the session very relevant to a history topic. A fun way to introduce the area before a visit. About 1 hour 15 mins.

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


We now have two prepared CDs with folders of photos of each service to prepare students for what they will be doing, also folders of the Life of the stream (including video footage), threats to the hills, management and many beautiful shots of landscape, flora and fauna to follow up their work. CD one focusses on The Long Mynd.

CD Two containing Wenlock Edge services (geology, Farm) together with Risk Assessments for both properties is also now available. Both CDs are updated each year. Please specify which CDs are required when ordering by using our "Booking Form"
