Description

The property is a former quarry, which has partially rewilded since operations ceased. It occupies an elevated location surrounded by the northern part of the Shropshire Hills AONB.

The site is effectively a deep man-made cleft in the wider hill side, sheltered by the surrounding wooded hills. The property extends to 9.329 hectares (23.05 acres). Some of the area is steep stone faces, which are not suitable for development.

The property has planning permission Ref. TWC/2021/0190 for change of use from former quarry to educational fieldwork centre including the erection of 3no. Iron-Age roundhouses, 1no. multi-purpose activity structure, warden's accommodation and 5no. camping pods. Plans are available on request.

A buyer will be able to develop the proposal out and operate accordingly. There is good potential to exploit synergies with the local museum and heritage centres in Ironbridge and Coalbrookdale.

The potential for a Forest School development is excellent.



The property is situated off Wellington Road, about 1.5 miles north of Little Wenlock and 0.25 mile south of the Wrekin Forest Glen Car Park.
The location is immediately south of The Ercall Nature Reserve, approximately 6 miles drive from the centre of Telford and 1.25 miles from the M54 (Wrockwardine).
The area is famous for its connections to the Industrial Revolution, with Ironbridge Gorge close by and the walking and nature trails around The Wrekin.
Birmingham is 38 miles to the south-east via the M54 and M6. Rail services are available from Oakengates (5 miles).
