A circular walk in the Carding Mill Valley, Shropshire. The area around the Carding Mill Valley is designated as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and the Long Mynd is an important place for wildlife. The walk covers a variety of terrain including a rugged route up a steep incline to the top of the hill, then over heather-covered hills with stunning views of the Shropshire Hills and on down a narrow valley steep in places with a drop on one side. Some areas could be muddy underfoot and some of the paths are uneven so good footwear is recommended. Some of the areas have grazing sheep so it is recommended that dogs are kept on leads. There are no stiles on route. A tearoom, gift shop and toilets are sited at the Carding Valley. Allow 3 hours.
