Annual Survey 2018

The 2018 Annual User Survey is now available until 31st March 2018.  Please click on the link below and then on the ‘How to get involved’ tab and help us to develop and identify priorities for Rights of Way, other access routes, and the Country Parks and Heritage Sites managed by Shropshire Council. Our budgets are under increasing pressure and your responses will help us to identify key areas for development in the future.

This is an annual survey, so you may well have filled out last year… please do so again! If you take part in a number of activities that make use of facilities in different ways and for which you would give different responses, e.g. for walking with friends and riding, you can fill in this survey more than once.

Outdoor Partnerships Annual Survey 2018

The survey should only take about 10 minutes of your time, depending on how much detail you give when answering the questions.

Come and enjoy everything that Shropshire’s Great Outdoors has to offer

Discover the fantastic countryside, exceptional views and wonderful wildlife. Explore our Country Parks, heritage sites and play areas or get active on over 5,600 km’s of Public Rights of Way (that’s the same distance as Shrewsbury to New York… on your doorstep!).

Shropshire has many special landscapes including the Shropshire Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, the Stiperstones and Corndon Hill Country crossing the border in the south west of the county and the internationally important Meres and Mosses in the north. The Pontcysyllte Aqueduct and Canal World Heritage Site also includes part of Shropshire around Chirk in the north.

On this website you will find lots of promoted routes for walking, cycling and riding across the county, from The Shropshire Way to Walking with Offa. Plus there are details of other fantastic activities you can do in the great outdoors, from archery to paragliding!

If you are looking for inspiration about where to go or what to do, the Top Experiences pages suggest a wide range of activities for all ages that highlight the incredible wildlife and history of Shropshire… or might just be fun!

Wherever you go and whatever you decide to do, we hope you enjoy Shropshire ‘s Great Outdoors!
