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 ran over five years (2013 – 2018) to conserve and enhance the local heritage and wildlife, raise awareness, and provide opportunities to all for involvement, access and learning.
It brought together local people, groups, organisations and professionals from England and Wales, and covered an area bounded by the settlements of Churchstoke, Chirbury, Minsterley, Pontesbury, Bridges, Wentnor and Norbury – see map below.
The Scheme was divided into four programmes reflecting the special qualities of the area. Fifteen projects were set up ranging from heritage restoration and habitat management, to training young people in rural skills and offering grants and advice to landowners.
These projects have evolved through other groups and organisations. To find out more follow this link http://www.stiperstonesandcorndon.co.uk/2018/03/sign-keep-touch-local-project/
The Scheme was supported by Heritage Lottery and other funders, and ended in April 2018.
