Heritage Heroes on the Stiperstones

My favourite Shropshire hills were featured on Heritage Heroes yesterday as John Craven and Jules Hudson met the people restoring old lead-miners' cottages on the Stiperstones. You can watch this episode on BBC iPlayer.

The programme mentioned that a book about these lost settlements on the Stiperstones is to be published. I suspect that it has already appeared and they were talking about is Once Upon a Hill: The Lost Communities of the Stiperstones.

You can read about the restoration of the cottages on the Natural England site.
