Activities/Attractions: Shropshire is one of the least crowded and most peaceful areas of England. Now one of the few remaining rural idylls, it has a long history of wild border conflicts which have left a legacy of atmospheric hill orts, earthworks and castles.
Clun is a charming town in a remote area of south-west Shropshire, in the Welsh borderlands or 'Marches'. The town or village of Clun grew up around the site of the later Saxon church towards the end of the 7th century AD. However, in the surrounding area there was a scattered population at least as early as the Neolithic period about 5000 years ago.
