This is ideal country for touring, walking, cycling or just relaxing, you can walk from here to Wenlock for lunch (7M) along the Wenlock Edge footpaths whilst our nearest public house “The Royal Oak” is at Cardington (4M).
There is a Co-op in Church Stretton and a Spar and garage supermarket in Much Wenlock. Sainsbury’s and Tesco will deliver to order if pre-arranged.
Some other local attractions are listed below:
The Stretton Hills
Wonderful walking country, not too arduous but full of surprises.
Wenlock Edge and the Wrekin
Wenlock Edge is a long wooded escarpment stretching from The Wrekin to Craven Arms the bridleways of which now form a key section of the 100 mile long Jack Mytton Way.
Wroxeter Roman City
Wroxeter was the fourth largest Roman town in Roman Britain. Nowadays visitors are amazed at the extent of Roman ruins on view. An audio tour round the civic centre, the forum and the hot and cold baths provide a fascinating insight into the lives of our ancestors.
Spectacular ruins in a beautiful garden setting on the outskirts of Much Wenlock. The Priory ruins, now in the hands of English Heritage, are the 12th and 13th century remains of the church and claustral buildings belonging to the Cluniac Priory.
