Bog Visitor Centre

UK»England»Shropshire»Bog Visitor Centre

Bog Visitor Centre: Today it is a quiet haven at the foot of the Stiperstones National Nature Reserve and, it is hard to imagine the days when The Bog was a hive of industrial activity. But right here indeed was a busy mining community of typical Shropshire folk, in an isolated spot 1,300 feet above sea level, with a hard-won haul of lead and barytes. Some traces of this lost village survive, including the Victorian school which today has a busy new life, run by a team of volunteers who believe it is unique as Britain's only gas-lit visitor centre.
