A day trip today again took us to lovely Church Stretton in Shropshire.It is a focal point for ramblers who walk the Wenlock Edge. Highly recommended. Good parking, cafes , shops and a super Co-Op.
Due to major delays on the way there ,seen on the A5 at Shrewsbury we returned via Much Wenlock in beautiful sunshine after a rainy day.
The B4371 takes you via lovely traditional English villages including Hope Bowdler (above) through Wall under Heywood and Longville in the Dale.

Many ramblers walk from Clee Hill to Longville

The scenery is truly stunning. Country pubs are easy to find for that leisurely lunch. St Peters at Rushbury, nestles at the foot of Wenlock Edge. It represents typical village scenes in the locality.
Caravan sites can be found along the B4371 including Caravan Club Certified Locations, privately run sites and Caravan and Camping Club Certified Locations. Details can be found and reviews can be read on
More information about the area can be found at We once stayed at Much Wenlock Caravan Club site which sits on Wenlock Edge itself, along almost the top of the ridge. At the time we used our Talbot Excalibur coach built and towed a little Suzuki Alto. This was long before towing a car became popular and it caused a lot of interest at the time !
