Shropshire's Little Switzerland

 Did you know Carding Mill Valley used to be advertised as Shropshire's Little Switzerland? The valley and surrounding area have a rich heritage, from the Iron Age hill fort to Edwardian Holiday makers. The National Trust works to preserve this historic area, and keep it the beautiful place it is today.

 Of course, some things have changed, such as the Chalet Pavilion! You can see in the photo below how different it used to look.
