About the neighbourhood
Within a few minutes drive are Cardingmill Valley and Church Stretton, known as Little Switzerland and Ludlow, reputed by many to be the finest medieval town in England. Famed nowadays for its Michelin starred restaurants it still holds its ancient street markets several days a week and annual culture and food festivals centred around its magnificent lofty castle. There is however, no necessity to travel far for good food as pubs and restaurants serving a range of mainly locally sourced foods are within easy reach . A Rare Breeds Society butcher, a rarity in itself, is based in Craven Arms. Ancient churches abound in idyllic towns and villages as well as modern, lively places of worship in local communities. Ironbridge's World Heritage sites are a half hour drive away close to Telford,... more
