The Lost Valley

The group had a guided tour from Gordon to Hawkstone Park & Follies. Created in the 18th Century by the Hill family, Hawkstone became one of the greatest historic parklands in Europe.

Centred around the Red Castle and the awe-inspiring Grotto Hill, it offers stunning views of the Shropshire countryside. Hawkstone follies parkland covers 100 acres. Intricate pathways, ravines, arches and bridges, the towering cliffs and follies, the hermit in his hermitage and King Arthur addressing his troops in the awesome caves.
