Our Walford Campus offers a beautiful rural setting close to Shrewsbury. Thanks to recent investment of over £10m, Walford provides some of the best land-based facilities in the region.

The Harris Centre welcomes visitors to the Walford Campus and is home to our Animal Care Centre with specialist facilities to cater for our 100 different species of animals including meerkats, snakes, alpacas, rats, kookaburras and bearded dragons. It is also home to our modern and friendly Learning Resource Centre. We also benefit from the excellent Collins Engineering Centre, motor vehicle and sports facilities set within an extensive country estate located near to the Harris Centre. The Walford Campus Refectory is open early for breakfast and the Social Club also provides a social area for our students during break and lunch times.

We are particularly proud of the RD Park Dairy Centre situated on our farm which is home to our successful commercial farm. The Walford farm has had over £1m invested in recent years which has increased the opportunities for our students by incorporating both a Fullwood 24/24 herringbone milking parlour and a Fullwood Merlin Robot.

We are proud to have a milking herd of 200 cows and a sheep flock of 65 breeding ewes. Adjacent to our Walford Farm is our Equestrian Centre which comprises a 60m x 30m indoor arena, outdoor school and stabling for 32 horses (livery facilities available by arrangement).

The Walford Campus is situated amidst a beautiful 220-hectare estate near Baschurch, just a few miles west of Shrewsbury with a network of transport routes from Telford, Shrewsbury, North Shropshire and the Welsh borders. The extensive grounds also include mature woodlands, new tree plantations, fishing pools and a rough game shoot.
