Cardingmill Valley Circular

This area is a trail runners paradise.

This route starts nearby to the National Trust tea shop, Car Park and public toilets. The entire valley is pay and display parking. In August 2014, the fee was £3.50 for the day. It's a nice spot for refreshments, but watch out ... it's very busy in the School holidays.

Follow the valley up from the tea shop, choosing any path you like either side of the stream. When there is an obvious fork on the valley, take the left hand fork which is signposted 'Waterfall.' Don't get excited... the Light Spout waterfall is only a trickle really. The path continue up on to lovely open heather moors. Use the small road to help aid navigation. There are numerous routes to choose from on the top of the Long Mynd, and some local knowledge can be useful to be sure you on the exact path you are aiming for. Use this route as a rough guide and find your own way back down to the valley bottom over Haddon Hill and Bodbury Hill. You may be interested to know that Bodbury Hill summit is a former Roman Hill Fort (as is Caradoc, across the valley.)
