New signs in Carding Mill Valley

Last week, 3 new trail-head signs were installed throughout the valley. Members of the TTF spent Tuesday digging the holes before Richard Channing from Dudmaston came over to help assemble the first sign. They were built by Richard, using Oak sourced from the Dudmaston estate. The rangers then put up the remaining two signs during the rest of the week. The trail-head signs feature a map of the Long Mynd with the three walking routes to the reservoir, waterfall and on top of the hill highlighted. Underneath the map there are 4 leaflet dispensers with the orange, red and pink walks, and the newly launched activity trail which includes the bird hide, rope pull and iron age fort. In addition to these signs, new finger posts will be put up soon, directing visitors to Church Stretton, the Tea Room and the waterfall amongst others.
