South view on the A49 - Craven Arms, Shropshire
A second view south on the A49 Ludlow - Shrewsbury road at Craven Arms. On the left ahead is the former Head Post Office, now the headquarters of the Shropshire Hills AONB (Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty). The town was originally the site of two hamlets, Newington and Newton, when the 19th century brought the arrival of a railway junction and growth to the place, the town taking its name from the 17th century Craven Arms Inn. Now a centre for shopping and tourism the town was once noted for its sheep sales. Here are the Secret Hills Discovery Centre, the Land of Lost Content museum - I found it a little melancholic - and not far away to the south stands Stokesay Castle, an English Heritage property. Whatever happened to that fair-haired lad in short trousers, where did he go? Time taken 9.34 am BST (British Summer Time).
