Welcome to Shropshire Hills National Landscape – the new name for this designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Our mission is to protect and regenerate this National Landscape and to make sure everyone can enjoy it.
We hope the information on this website will help you to explore and enjoy the Shropshire Hills, and inspire you to connect with and care for this special landscape.
A new chapter in the story of this designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
All designated Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty across England and Wales have become National Landscapes.
The new name reflects the national importance of these areas: the vital contribution they make to protect the nation from the threats of climate change, nature depletion and the wellbeing crisis. The new name will also create greater understanding and awareness for the work of the whole National Landscapes family.
This is a significant milestone for the UK and the next step in fully realising the National Landscapes’ vision to be the leading exemplars of how thriving, diverse communities can work with and for nature in the UK: restoring ecosystems, providing food, storing carbon to mitigate the effects of climate change, safeguarding against drought and flooding, whilst also nurturing people’s health and wellbeing.
