Campaign Launched To Buy 12 Acres Of Little Fields On The Stiperstones

A funding appeal has been launched by Shropshire Wildlife Trust to help it purchase 12 acres of little fields on The Stiperstones in Pennerley. The land itself has been put up for sale by the landowner, who is keen for it to be managed in such a way as to conserve its character and wildlife.

The acreage lies within the National Nature Reserve, the Shropshire Star reports, with views out west over Hope Valley and north to Perkins Beach.

The trust itself has been involved in the restoration and protection of The Stiperstones’ natural habitats for quite some time now, starting with the back to purple heathland recovery scheme that was launched over 20 years ago.

Development manager with the organisation John Hughes said: “Much has been achieved during this period and now we have an opportunity to ensure the protection of another delightful piece of land.

“We would really appreciate every donation - there are currently very few grant funding opportunities for land purchase - so we are relying completely on the generosity of our supporters.”

The Stiperstones is a great destination for all kinds of exploring, with all sorts of walks to be found, old mines, ancient landscapes and a whole lot more. The hill really stands out among the Shropshire countryside, with jagged rocks rising up to meet the sky.

One of the rocks is known as The Devil’s Chair and local legend has it that when clouds cover the top of the hill, Satan can be found sitting up there on his throne.
