About the location
Hopton Near Nesscliffe
Nesscliffe 1 mile; Shrewsbury 9 miles.
The pretty hamlet of Hopton nestles beside the wooded slopes of the Nesscliffe Hill Countryside Forestry Park and is only a short walk from Nesscliffe village, which has a hotel and a renowned pub with excellent restaurant. The wonderful town of Shrewsbury, which is set into a loop of the River Severn and is often considered one of England's finest towns, is only 9 miles away. Famous for its timber framed, black and white buildings, the town offers a fine selection of shops, restaurants and pubs, as well as being home to Shrewsbury Abbey, founded in 1083, and to the fictional Brother Cadfael, whose chronicles were set in and inspired by the town. Shrewsbury Castle, an impressive sandstone building in beautiful gardens and grounds, is well worth a visit, as is peaceful Quarry Park, home to the annual Shrewsbury Flower Show each August and featuring a beautiful sunken floral area called The Dingle.
