Much Wenlock, Shropshire, Part 1

Much Wenlock, Shropshire, UK

I took the image above from www.muchwenlockguide.info


  The monument is to mark Queen Victoria's Diamond Jubilee.
The Old Guildhall is the B&W building in the background.

Constructed in 1682, Raynald's Mansion

The Talbot Inn has been a lodging place since 1361.

The George and Dragon Inn and Restaurant.
Good fish'n'chips.



In other words, 'Dead End.' The prohibition against cycling could be because the entrance you see is only about 4 feet high.

You can read Wikipedia's version of the history of Much Wenlock right here!

Next week I'll post the photos I took at the ruins of the Cluniac Priory in this beautiful corner of England.
