Church Stretton Walking Festival
Last week the Church Stretton walking festival went ahead with numerous walks all week. Nick Robinson Assistant Ranger at CMV led 2 walks on the 7th and the 9th June. One was a 9 and a half mile walk and the other a 6 and a half mile walk.
Participants walked past numerous sites on the hill for example Pole Bank, Lightspout waterfall and the Reservoir in CMV, all the way learning about the history, the geology, and the management of the site. At the end of both walks participants all got to have a very well deserved cup of tea and a lie down!
