|CHURCH STRETTON (www.churchstretton.co.uk)
The small market town of Church Stretton, (which recently became the first town in the Midlands to be awarded 'Walkers are Welcome' status, is approximately 4 miles from the campsite. The immediate vicinity offers good access to the Long Mynd, which rises to a height of 506 m and is dissected by long valleys such as Minton Batch and Callow Hollow and provides splendid walking country and fine views. It is at Church Stretton that 'Wild Edric's Way' (named after 'Edric the Wild', a Saxon nobleman who rebelled against the Normans) begins, taking in some of the finest views and crossing the topmost grouse moors eventually ending at the historic town of Ludlow. The 'Shropshire Way' is also easily accessible from the site. www.shropshirewalking.co.uk.
Also within a short distance is Craven Arms www.visitcravenarms.co.uk where a range of activities suitable for all ages can be found. Further afield, the World Heritage site at Ironbridge offers visitors an insight into the origins of the Industrial Revolution.
