In 2022/23 the Shropshire Council Community Trees Scheme offered grants to people who wished to plant trees and short sections of hedging, and to create small areas of woodland in Shropshire. They may offer the same again in the current year. Grants are available through the the UK government for planting trees as well as stewardship grants. https://www.gov.uk/countryside-stewardship-grants for various criteria relating to the countryside and environment.
The purchasers of the meadow will be asked to enter into a covenant to ensure the quiet and peaceful enjoyment of adjoining woodlands and meadows.
A glorious open field with superb sunshine ready to plant or leave as is. Amazing views of the woodlands and valley around with superb access to unspoiled countryside.
Open hedged rather than fenced fields allow wildlife free rein throughout this area. Muntjac, badger, moles, voles, rabbits and much more call this area home.
Open sloping field with outstanding views of the valley and woodlands around.
Access, tracks and footpaths
Sheep may be on the open fields. Will all visitors kindly NOT BRING THEIR DOGS or maintain them on a very short leash. Thank you.
