Walking in the Shropshire Hills AONB

By , Friday 26th August 2016 in Hiking Midlands

A nice short walk through the Shropshire hills from Carding Mill Valley along the stream to the four metre cascade at the picturesque Lightspout Waterfall.

On a lovely summers day, we went out for a short walk in the Shropshire Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB) to see the Lightspout waterfall and to photograph some of the wildlife. The walk started off at the Carding Mill Valley National Trust centre and quickly becomes an easy trail through the valley. There are many different routes to take, some light along tarmac paths through to more difficult stony single tracks along a ridge line. The walk is only 1.5 miles, but takes in a walk along the river up to a reservoir then up around the ridge with spectacular views down the valley before joining up with the easy track and heading off up the river again to the waterfall.
