We parked here by accident when visiting the Stiperstones but found out there is more here than meets the eye, with old ruins of an old mining village. Definitely worth a look at if you are into history.

We'd been walking on the Shropshire Way and wanted somewhere for a cup of tea before setting off home. This place was perfect - excellent drinks and cakes, good value, friendly staff, and lots of interesting books and crafts set out all around the edge....More

We love going to the bog for refreshments after a walk in the area. The tea, coffee and cakes are superb - and there are lots of great circular walks you can do from the car park nearby. Friendly and helpful volunteer staff too!
