Recreation and erosion on the Wrekin: a case study

A case study on the effects of visitors on areas of outstanding natural beauty and an analysis of remedial measures.

Year of Publication2009

Areas of outstanding natural beauty such as the Wrekin in Shropshire suffer from erosion caused by heavy use by walkers, bicyclists and vehicles. Remedial action on the Wrekin has failed to prevent damage and, with time, may reinforce it by concentrating run-off and causing a ‘domino’ effect. An integrated strategy for limiting damage is required.
