Craven Arms

Craven Arms - Gateway to the Marches

On the edge of the old Marcher kingdom, Craven Arms grew into an important frontier trading post between Wales and England.

Surrounded by hills, Craven Arms is the natural start point for many long distance and shorter circular walks it was almost inevitable that it also became the home of the Shropshire Hills Discovery Centre.

Here you can experience a virtual balloon ride over Shropshire and meet the Shropshire Mammoth - hairy, very hairy!

Just out of the town is the romantic Stokesay Castle - a 13th Century fortified manor house said to be so beautiful that when attacked no-one had the heart to destroy it - Be prepared to fall in love.
