The Heart of England/Peak District

A E Houseman once wrote that Shropshire was “the quietest place under the sun” and today the county remains something of a rural idyll, recognised as one of the least crowded and most peaceful regions in England.


The Priory forms a backdrop to many outdoor events and theatrical performances, including the Tales from the Edge Festival. The 16th Century Guildhall hosts regular antiques markets. Above the town rises the Wenlock Edge which provides glorious views. This 15 mile limestone escarpment was created some 400 million years ago and is now looked after by the National Trust. The Edge and its ancient woodlands offer excellent walks, cycling and riding opportunities. Long distance routes like the Jack Mytton Way and Shropshire Way pass over Wenlock Edge. Nearby are further attractions, such as Benthall Hall - a 16th Century house with stunning interiors and a carefully restored plantsman's garden - and Broseley Pipe Works: a Victorian clay tobacco-pipe works.
