A large open expanse of field within the Ritton Castle site. A superb area within beautiful countryside, with access to the North Wales coast, as well as other AONB. Bordered by a large isolated extremely healthy Ash tree and views of Stiperstones national nature reserve to the SE and NW towards Wales and Offa's Dyke.
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. Other grants are available through the Countryside Stewardship fund via the UK gov website.
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.
Few trees, mainly unspoiled views.
Open hedged rather than fenced fields allow wildlife free reign throughout this area. Muntjac, badger, moles, voles, rabbits and much more call this area home.
The views from the field of the countryside around are superb and there's ample space to park, camp, plant and breathe.
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.
