Towns in and around the AONB

Church Stretton nestles between the Long Mynd and the Stretton Hills, while Clun lies at the centre of the lovely river valley which bears its name. Just outside the AONB lie some historic and fascinating towns – Ludlow with its fine buildings, food and festivals, Much Wenlock has connections to Olympic history, Bishop’s Castle, Cleobury Mortimer, Craven Arms and Wellington, along with Knighton just over the border in Wales.
