Shropshire Hills by Bus

The Long Mynd & Stiperstones Shuttle Bus will start again on Saturday 30th April 2016, and run every weekend and Bank Holiday Mondays until October 2016

Sit back and enjoy the scenery as the Shuttle Bus travels over the Long Mynd and around the Stiperstones. Together these 'hills' make up the largest area of heathland in the Shropshire Hills. Come late summer they are a sea of purple and not to be missed. The National Trust looks after much of the Long Mynd, while the most wildlife-rich and geologically dramatic area of the Stiperstones is managed as a National Nature Reserve by Natural England. Both organisations strike the delicate balance between conservation, agriculture and visitor enjoyment, so by using the Bus you're helping with this balancing act.

Unfortunately, Castle Connect, which ran between Ludlow, Knighton, Clun and Bishop's Castle will not be running in 2016. This route was set up three years ago as part of Shropshire's Sustainable Transport Project. Now that funding has ceased, the cost of running this service for another year was in danger of putting the future of the Long Mynd & Stiperstones Shuttle at risk. Thank you to all who supported this route over the last couple of years. We are looking at other options to better link the towns with the hills, and will be applying for new grants to support this.
