Shropshire Countryside & Canals.

Alkington Grange Barns lies within a working farm. You can take walks across many of our fields and the Shropshire Way run through the farm itself. Throughout the year many farming events take place including grass cutting and silageing, rolling, hedge cutting and other grassland activities. We also have Winter Sheep.

The Farm is within a Higher level Scheme to encourage Bird life. Birds on the Farm include Buzzards, Kestrels, Sparrow Harks, Lapwings, Yellow Hammers and many more hedgerow birds for your enjoyment.

The Shropshire Union Canal is a navigable canal in England. The Llangollen and Montgomery canals are the modern names of branches of the Shropshire Union ("SU") system and lie partially in Wales. The canal lies in the counties of Staffordshire, Shropshire and Cheshire in the north-west midlands of England. It links the canal system of the West Midlands, at Wolverhampton, with the River Mersey and Manchester Ship Canal at Ellesmere Port, Cheshire, 66 miles (106 km) distant.
