Severn Valley Country Park.
Inspired by Spekey to add more caches to this already popular series.Severn Valley Railway series is for those that love Steam Railways; they will get you to where you can see moving trains close up, in picturesque places.

THE HIGHLEY TRAIL from Colliery Bridge.

An area of some 126 acres of woodland, meadows and wetland, dedicated for the quiet enjoyment of the countryside by the public, the Severn Valley Country Park spans both sides of the River Severn between the villages of Highley and Alveley. The area was once the site of the Highley and Alveley Collieries which ceased production in 1969 after almost a hundred years of mining.

Following the closure of the mine, the spoil heaps and land lay derelict until 1986.
Bridgnorth District Council embarked on an ambitious project to reclaim the land.
The park opened in 1992 and is now managed by Shropshire Council.

Thanks to Shropshire Council for allowing Geocaches to be placed in the Park
And the Rangers for all their assistance.

Hampton Loade on the Severn Valley Railway is a quaint little station with flowers in abundance, and packed full of interesting items. The station has two platforms, signal box a passing loop a siding and a waiting shelter. This has got to be one of the best stations in the UK with a dedicated work force more than willing to help and answer your questions
Facilities include car park toilets and a refreshment kiosk (open weekends)

A short walk to the river is the Hampton Loade Ferry which has operated at this point for over 400 years.

The Unicorn Inn and camp site is a pleasant spot to spend the night

Across the river is the National Trust car park, from there you can walk up the river into the grounds of the National Trusts Dudmaston Hall.
