Clun, Shropshire

"Clunton and Clunbury, Clungunford and Clun are the quietest places under the sun"
A. E. Housman, A Shropshire Lad.

Clun is a town in miniature lying in a stunningly beautiful valley in the Clun Forest. The Forest is however largely treeless - presumably to confuse the visitor. The town is centred on the 14th Century Packhorse Bridge – they conveniently installed alcoves for pedestrians to avoid being run over by any passing cart. "twill sharpen your wits to cross Clun bridge" especially if you have been visiting one of the local hostelries.

On an earlier Motte and Bailey site the atmospheric ruins of the Norman Clun Castle rises above the town. The Trinity Hospital and Almshouses are Jacobean with 2 quadrangles. Built in 1614 to provide "charitable accommodation to 12 men of good character" - still does so today

Very peaceful, very pretty and walks galore with Offa's Dyke, Caer Caradoc and Bury Ditches Hill forts nearby.

The Clun Green Man Day where The Green Man and Frost Queen battle for supremacy takes place in Clun each year. (Spoiler alert: The Green Man always wins)
