Stiperstones and Corndon Hill Country is a beautiful upland area that crosses the Welsh English border between the Shropshire Hills and Montgomeryshire.
The Landscape Partnership Scheme aims to conserve and enhance the local heritage and wildlife, raise awareness, and provide opportunities to all for involvement, access and learning.
It brings together local people, groups, organisations and professionals from England and Wales, and covers an area bounded by the settlements of Churchstoke, Chirbury, Minsterley, Pontesbury, Bridges, Wentnor and Norbury – see map below.
The Scheme is divided into four programmes reflecting the special qualities of the area, and is running fifteen projects, ranging from heritage restoration and habitat management, to training young people in rural skills and offering grants and advice to landowners.
Supported by Heritage Lottery and other funders, the Scheme is running for five years, ending April 2018.
