This tiny village stands on the slopes of the Rea Valley, close to the Shropshire plateau. Renowned for lead mining since Roman times, the area now holds a reputation for outdoor pursuits such as walking, cycling and birdwatching. The wonderful Stiperstones are only one mile away, capped by great outcrops of rock, the most famous known as the Devil’s Chair. Today this beautiful area is referred to as "Mary Webb country" as it inspired her novels The Golden Arrow, Precious Bane and Gone To Earth. Nearby is Shrewsbury, often considered one of England’s finest towns, famous for its timber framed, black and white buildings. There are excellent shops, pubs and restaurants, as well as Shrewsbury Abbey, the lovely Quarry Park (home to the famous Shrewsbury Flower Show each August), picturesque riverside walks and pleasure boat trips. An excellent base to explore beautiful Shropshire.
