From Roman times this part of Shropshire has been referred to as the ‘remotest part of England’. Here the borders with Wales have ebbed and flowed over the centuries and many of it’s towns and villages have been fought over, claimed and ruled by both countries.


The Upper Clun Valley is a designated AONB. Take your time here to enjoy the peaceful surroundings and the scenery.
