Our free Skylark Nature Trail is so called due to a large number of Skylarks we hear in Spring & Summer. They’re hard to see, as they’re small & hover so high. They hover, watching for seeds & insects.
The trail begins & ends in the car park at Apley Farm Shop. It is about 1 mile (1.5 km) & takes about 45 mins. There are 7 information boards – Field View, Badgers, Farming, History, Woodland, Geology & Hedgerows. Enjoy a rest on the benches near each Information board.
On your journey look out for the badger setts, what’s growing in the fields, the owl nesting boxes in the woods, what’s growing in the hedgerows.
A great opportunity to get out & about in the beautiful Shropshire countryside. Pick up some picnic snacks in the Farm Shop or after your walk enjoy a relaxing bite to eat in the Creamery Cafe.
Follow nature’s & farming changes through the four seasons – Spring, Summer, Autumn, Winter.
