The Long Mynd and the Stiperstones ridge

Independent Hostel Sign at Broughton Bunkhouse Lower Broughton Farm

Broughton Bunkhouse  is close to the Long Mynd and the Stiperstones ridge which make up the largest area of open heathland in the Shropshire Hills. 

Visually, these two ‘hills’ are very different – the Long Mynd is a large and long plateau, while the Stiperstones ridge has rugged outline.  Come to stay at the bunkhouse  and look for the bilberry (known locally as whinberry) amongst the Heather and the many insects and birds that come to eat them.
