Shobdon junction-Herefordshire
Here, by the green at Shobdon, Hanbury Green joins the B4362, which leads from Presteigne to Mortimers Cross and Orleton, in this quiet North Herefordshire village. The B4362 was once the route of the main road from London to Aberystwyth. Nearby is Shobdon Airfield. The Shobdon Arches, away to the north of the village, are all that remain of the original Shobdon church, demolished by Viscount Bateman of Shobdon Court. Its replacement, of 18th century date but keeping the 13th century tower, has a rather elaborately decorated interior in blue and white, which has been described as 'striking'. Time taken 10.54 am BST (British Summer Time).
