Managing the Mynd

Ever wondered how the Long Mynd looks the way it does? The rugged and distinctive length of heathland is one of the county’s most recognisable landscapes, attracting families and walkers from all over the country to explore its vales, peaks and streams.

In an evening talk at Carding Mill Valley Pavilion, National Trust Area Ranger Patrick will give details of the way heathland is actively managed, explaining the work involved in maintaining a fragile ecosystem as well as the reasoning behind bracken spraying and heather burning.

The talk is at 6pm on Saturday 9 March and is £10 per person, which includes soup and a roll; call 03442 491895 for details.
