The Cliffe ownership and maintenance
It’s been said a few times but you may have missed it. The 32 acre section of the Cliffe that is in our parish is now owned by Ruyton XI Towns Parish Council. We purchased it outright when it was discovered that it was owned by the Bradford Estate and not Shropshire Council as previously assumed. The details of this will be published at some stage in the near future when we celebrate this fact in a bigger way.
In the meantime we are forming a volunteer group called the Cliffe Crew to maintain the precious heathland habitat. Lee, our Shropshire Council Park Ranger, will lead this group with the expectation that they meet once a month. If you are interested in being part of this group then please let us know using the contact form on our website.
