About Shropshire

The remote and romantic Shropshire Hills form part of the ancient border Marches. These Welsh border lands have been fought over and disputed throughout much of our history. Of course, no one disputes the border today, any more than they would dispute the beauty of the region and the rich diversity of it's landscape. The complex geology of the area is largely responsible for the immense variety of the scenery which makes Shropshire so interesting and such a joy to walk.

For example the Wrekin consists of ancient volcanic lava, whilst Wenlock Edge, just 30km south west, was once at the bottom of an ancient sea and is composed of carboniferous limestone. In fact Shropshire claims to be unique in the world, in having rocks from ten of the twelve geological periods within it's boundaries. Shropshire's area is approximately 50 miles from north to south, and from east to west about 40 miles at its widest. Shropshire has seven major rivers, being the Severn, Teme, Clun, Warren, Rea, Tern and Rodan. A major agricultural region, Shropshire has seen grain, hops and fruit cropping, plus cattle and sheep farming. Prolific deposits of lead, iron, limestone, free-stone, pipe-clay and coal
