A49 at Craven Arms - Shropshire
A49 at Craven Arms - Shropshire
This view is looking south on the A49 Ludlow - Shrewsbury road at Craven Arms. There has been considerable new building in the town which has changed its appearance since days of childhood. The town was originally just two hamlets, Newington and Newton, and in the 19th century the building of a railway junction brought growth, the town being named after 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. Time taken 9.33 am BST (British Summer Time).
