Shropshire Hills

Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty

What's Happening


The Shropshire Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB) covers almost a quarter of Shropshire.  It's a living landscape, loved by locals and visitors alike for its quality of environment, rich history, and for walking, relaxation and inspiration. 

This website will help you to find out about what’s special about the Shropshire Hills, ideas for enjoying and exploring, and work being carried out to look after the AONB and promote its qualities.

It's important to follow the Countryside Code when you are out and about in the Shropshire Hills to keep everyone and the environment safe.

With an influx of visitors anticipated in the Shropshire Hills AONB as lockdown restrictions are eased, teams across the region have been working together to help get news out to potential arrivals in the area.

A new hashtag #ParkShropshireHills will be used by teams managing various well-known sites to give up-to-date reports on the parking situation.

This will hopefully inform incoming visitors of when sites are at capacity so they can make alternative choices and spread the load across the region.

We are also asking visitors to think ahead, plan their trip before they travel and have a Plan B up their sleeve.

Many local businesses, cafes, resturants, and public toilets remain closed over the Easter break.
