SO5270 : Ashford Carbonell

taken 13 years ago, near to Ashford Carbonell, Shropshire, Great Britain

Ashford Carbonell.
Ashford Carbonell.
Cul de sac village and notorious as one of the Ludlow area's most desirable addresses. A three room cottage here will set you back 250000, and that's the smallest property in the village.
A sleepy dull place, the pubs were all shut down by a previous landowner, even cidermaking was banned. To this day the place is dry, removing an obvious social focus. Good news is that there is still a school here, due to the closures in neighbouring villages. However the expansion in housing that the village needed was denied by South Shropshire Council's planning policy - roughly translated as "plebs in towns please".

Note re spelling.

Both Carbonel and Carbonell are acceptable, and both used by the OS. The quirk used to be a source of a little local pride, along with the fish window in the church and the mill.
