A beautiful circular walk discovering the delightful nature and fascinating industrial heritage of Granville Country Park near Telford in Shropshire. This nature reserve is a sprawling network of copses, heaths, grasslands, pools, scrub, wet woodlands and oak capped mounds. Relics of former industrial activity, including furnaces and an old winding house, are now surrounded by woodland full of birds, while pit mounds of waste have been transformed into flower-rich grassland and heath. You will have chance to enjoy plenty of flora and fauna, expansive views and glimpses of old mines and furnaces that helped shape the country's industrial revolution. The walk includes several climbs and descents throughout and you will need to negotiate some kissing gates plus several long steep flights of woodland steps. Many of the woodland paths can get very muddy so good boots are required and wellingtons are recommended after periods of rain and in the wet winter months. A few of the paths are narrow and can get a little overgrown. Dogs are welcome in the country park and the area is a popular dog walking spot. One small section of the park is grazed by horses for conservation at some times of year. There are no toilets or other facilities in the park. Approximate time 2 hours.
