About the location

WESTON

Much Wenlock 6 miles; Bridgnorth 8 miles.

Weston is a small rural hamlet in Shropshire, surrounded by rolling farmland. Weston nestles in the lovely Corve Dale Valley, overlooked by the impressive Wenlock Edge and is only 6 miles from Much Wenlock, a delightful 700-year old market town on the north east end of the famous Wenlock Edge, in the heart of the beautiful Shropshire countryside. Much Wenlock is filled with a patchwork of twisting streets, half timbered buildings, limestone cottages, speciality shops, quality pubs and restaurants, and is the home of the modern Olympic Games, founded by Dr William Penny-Brookes in 1850. Stroll around the remains of the magnificent 12th Century Priory, the 16th Century Guildhall, the interesting Norman church and the Old Gaol House. Above the town rises the 15 mile long Wenlock Edge, boasting glorious views and excellent walking, cycling and riding. Nearby are the medieval towns of Bridgnorth, home of the delightful Severn Valley Railway, Shrewsbury and Ludlow, the World Heritage Centre of Ironbridge with nine museums and Blists Hill Victorian Village, plus Stokesay Castle and the historic Acton Scott Farm, as seen on TV.
