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.
