Towards Corvedale - Craven Arms, Shropshire
Another view looking west on Corvedale Road, Craven Arms on this overcast day in late October. Take this road - the B4368 - if you want to get to Bridgnorth or Much Wenlock, both of which are worth a visit. Originally the site of two hamlets, Newington and Newton, the town grew with the arrival of a railway junction in the 19th century and took its name from the 17th century Craven Arms Inn. The town has the headquarters of the Shropshire Hills AONB (Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty), the Secret Hills Discovery Centre, the Land of Lost Content museum - I found it a bit melancholic - and not far away to the south stands Stokesay Castle, an English Heritage property. The town is easy to get to, worth a visit in its own right in my quite unbiased opinion and there are some eating places besides. Time taken 9.58 am BST (British Summer Time).
