Moonlit Walk 2020
On Friday 30th October, Mr Brown and Dr Hayden brought a group of 10 students on an evening hike along Long Mynd. On the way to the peak of the Long Mynd, we took a break and had some snacks while we engaged in academic and social discussion. When we reached the peak, Mr Brown made a great imitation of a lighthouse (which was very entertaining), and we were very intrigued by the sheep and wild ponies we saw throughout the hike. The Halloween Moonlit Walk was fun overall, and although the moon only intermittently peaked through the clouds, Mr Brown gave us beautiful coloured balloons which glowed brighter than the moon appeared and helped us to light our path.

Concord’s Moonlit Walk 2019
On 19th February 2019, a group of 11 students accompanied by Mr Brown, Mrs Darrall and Mrs Carter departed for an evening walk to the summits of the Long Mynd (we ascended approximately 516m), under the light of the full moon. We had the opportunity to witness the most spectacular and breath-taking views of the Shropshire hills. Although it was a very chilly night, being able to immerse ourselves in the Shropshire countryside was undoubtedly a wonderful experience for many of us.
“Although the moon wasn’t bright as it wasn’t a particularly clear evening, the company and experience was more than worth it and it was an unforgettable night” – Emily 6.1
“I enjoyed the hike as it was interesting to see what my eyes could ‘pick out’ in darkness. We also got to play with LED balloons, designed to glow in the dark and they looked really pretty under the night sky.” – Rachael 6.1
