The picturesque town and surrounding villages form an excellent base for the country lover and sportsman alike at all times of the year; whether hikers, horse riders, mountain bikers, or nature-lovers. The Long Mynd rising above the west of the town is renowned for gliding, hang gliding and paragliding, and boasts the second highest golf course in England.
A beautiful medieval town that inspired the modern Olympic Games, Much Wenlock is quintessentially English, and feels much more like a village than a town.
Owned by the National Trust, the Long Mynd is one of the jewels in Church Stretton’s crown. A stunning heather-clad plateau, it’s a must for those who love walking, cycling, running and just soaking up mother nature.
