The Bog Visitor Centre C.I.C, in the shadow of the Stiperstones in Shropshire, is a gas-lit Victorian former school which is one of the few remaining buildings of a lost lead and barytes mining village.

The Bog mine once had 200 buildings and featured an amazing aerial ropeway. It is set in a legendary geological landscape and noted in folklore for the exploits of Wild Edric. The centre is staffed by local helpers who are always happy to share their knowledge of the area with nearly 20,000 visitors each year. We are noted for our warm welcome and local home baked refreshments.

With ample car parking it is the ideal starting point for many walks around the Stiperstones National Nature Reserve. Dogs are welcome at all  times.

We are open 7 days a week from Wednesday 29th March 2019. Opening hours are 10 am to 5pm, except on Mondays when we open at 12 noon. In October and November we close at 4pm. We close for Winter on Sunday 3rd November 2019.

Please help us if groups of  12 or more are visiting and require refreshments, let us know by email or phone so that we can ensure we have sufficient cakes and helpers.
