North from Wistanstow-Shropshire
North from Wistanstow-Shropshire
On the northern edge of Wistanstow village, this lane will take the traveller to Leamoor Common and Bushmoor. The village, named after St Wystan, is sited on the Roman road between Wroxeter (Uriconium) and Leintwardine (Bravinium) and the parish church dates from Norman times with many features of interest. Nearby is The Monument - aka Flounders Folly (opening restricted, see website) - from where, on top of Callow Hill, there are wide-ranging views. Wistanstow is worth a visit is my unbiased opinion - my mothers family, Coles, were from Grove Bank. Time taken 2.46 pm BST (British Summer Time).
