About the location

CLIVE

Shrewsbury 9 miles; Ellesmere Lakes 10 miles.

The picturesque village of Clive centres around the charming manor house of Clive Hall, situated on the steep wooded slopes of Grinshill, 9 miles from medieval Shrewsbury. This stunning area, famous for its ancient mines and beautiful natural stone production boasts numerous scenic walks and cycle routes, all with stunning views of the nearby Welsh mountain peaks. Historic Shrewsbury, located on the banks of the River Severn, boasts a wealth of timber framed, black and white buildings in addition to its fine selection of shops, restaurants and pubs. Shrewsbury Abbey, founded in 1083 and famous for being the home of the fictional Brother Cadfael, is well worth a visit, as is Shrewsbury Castle, an impressive building set in beautiful gardens and housing the Shropshire Regimental Museum. A great holiday location at any time of the year.
