KARUNA PERMACULTURE PROJECT (Low Impact)

earth oven making, basket making and numerous land related activities are offered at Karuna, an 18 acre holding.

This official “LAND” demonstration and research site www.permaculture.org.uk/land  is a working smallholding.  Newly planted diverse woodlands and orchards, established examples of forest gardens support biodiversity and wildlife. The aim is to help people connect with nature through offering a unique experience within the web of diversity.    

Janta & Merav Wheelhouse welcome those with an interest in organising a land related event/course at this unique agro- forestry project/Nature reserve/retreat and arboretum. Visitors are welcome by prior arrangement.

CYCLING

Long Mynd Audax Rides

HORSE RIDING

Picklescott is ideally placed for access to Ride UK routes and the many miles of bridleways which criss-cross the Long Mynd. Much of this area is designated as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty . On a clear day the Long Mynd offers spectacular views over the Wrekin, Lawley Hill, Caer Caradoc, the Clees, the Malverns, the Stiperstones and the Welsh Hills.

Within 5 minutes of leaving the car park at Picklescott Village Hall - where you can park your trailer or horse box all day for a modest contribution to the Village Hall - riders can pick up a Ride UK route which will take them out onto the Long Mynd in under an hour.

Under the umbrella of the Ride UK  project outline plans for ten circular routes have been compiled with help from members of the Long Mynd & District Bridleways Association.

The majority of the proposed routes link directly with the Jack Mytton Way Shropshire's premier long distance bridleway which crosses the Long Mynd and many of the routes can be linked with each other.

The Long Mynd and District Bridleways Association can be contacted about this project:-
