Set in the middle of the delightful Shropshire Hills, one of the scones you will find! If you are into local history or researching family history, this could be the place for you.

What a gem of a place in the middle of nowhere. Wonderful cakes, hot chocolate and an oasis especially when it is wet and wild on the tops. A lot of pottery and greetings cards for sale.

Run by volunteers, housed in the old school house of what remains of a mining village, this is a perfect place to drop by for home made cakes and a decent cup of coffee. Free wifi. One is totally tempted by items to buy all sourced from local craftspeople. On the tables there are sheets to read of local Shropshire... More

Heard on Radio Shropshire about the Christmas fair and decided to go. What a lovely part of the county and a friendly Visitor centre with gorgeous home made cakes. Lovely walking country. We will definitely go back when they open again next spring. Even if you're not a walker or cyclist is a lovely drive with beautiful views.

Its situated in an old school and has a good selection of cakes and hot drinks. There are exhibits of local crafts and arts and information on the mining which took place in the area from 1730's to around 1920. The centre has a car park and is a relatively short walk from the stiperstones. Overall a very good place... More

We visited the Centre for a coffe following our tour of the nearby Snailsbeach Lead Mine. Coffee/tea and cakes were available with light meals. There was a shop incorporated in the centre selling local crafts and guide books. A very useful centre to visit if weather becomes wet.

Had lovely walk up to Devils chair and along the Stiplestones. Well worth the drive. Need good walking shoes as terrain is very uneven, but views stunning. Make sure you park in the car park by the Bog Visitor Centre, as there are no toilets anywhere else, and the tea shop is a must. Cakes lovely. Visitor centre full of... More
