Covering as much as 2,000 hectares (4,942 acres) of heather-covered hills with stunning views of the Shropshire Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, the Long Mynd is an important place for wildlife, geology and archaeology.

Species that were in decline now abound, and this guidebook will show you where and when to find them. Richly illustrated throughout and with specially commissioned artwork, this guidebook will briefly relate the history of the place before expounding the year-round delights of Carding Mill Valley and the Long Mynd, the wildlife hotspots, where you can dip your feet, stretch your legs, expand your lungs and refresh your soul.

It's going to be them that break the stigma, not us.'
