|Description ||SO435825. This impressive exhibition is a millenium project worth singing about. A museum to demonstrate the wonders of an outstanding area of England so little known about. Hence the secret hills bit.
This covers archaeology, geology, wildlife, folklore, and local arts & crafts.
The full size skeleton of the Condover Mammoth is there to worry or delight children!
Of interest to the megarak is much on lumps & bumps in the area; a simulated balloon ride of many of the hillforts in the area; and a display which includes the folklore of Mitchell's Fold stone circle.
The decently priced gift / book shop is excellent. The restaurant has a pretty good menu, and we enjoyed our Chicken Tikkas, again at a decent price.
As a paying exhibition, it does not give a huge amount of in-depth stuff, but gives a thoroughly worthwhile overview of the area.
There is also a large meadow area outside with walks, and for anyone interested in land management and green issues, this would likely prove an attraction.
We rate it very well worth a visit.|
|But where is it??|
|It's in Craven Arms, right on the A49. Excellent chips at the restaurant!|
