A Tree Walk in the Shropshire Hills

A Tree Walk in the Shropshire Hills in South Shropshire
Local arborist, John Tuer, is leading a guided walk at 1pm this Sunday 11th May 2014 from Bury Ditches, near Clunton.

John will be looking at a variety of native and non-native trees on this 7 mile walk which will guide you through Walcot Wood, to look at some of the unusually shaped, 400 year old oaks, and into Clunton Coppice, a Shropshire Wildlife Trust Nature Reserve.

Stephanie Hayes, Promotions Officer for the Shropshire Hills AONB Partnership, explains “This walk is a follow up from the talk on ‘Trees of the Shropshire Hills’, which John gave in March. As well as explaining the issues facing trees, John will be able to provide you with some top tips on planting and caring for your own trees.”

This walk is one of a series of guided walks led by volunteers on behalf of the Shropshire Hills AONB Partnership. You do not need to have attended the talk to join the walk.

This walk is just over 7-miles with some stiles. Please wear strong shoes or walking boots as the footpaths are uneven in places. The walk starts at 1pm from Bury Ditches car park, and will return by 5.30pm, so please bring refreshments with you.

Booking is essential, please call Alison at the Shropshire Hills AONB Partnership, on 01588 674080 or email shropshirehillsaonb@shropshire.gov.uk. The cost is £3 or £2 for members of Friends of the Shropshire Hills AONB.
