Things to do in Craven Arms, Oxfordshire

Awaiting photographs of Craven Arms

Craven Arms is named after its restored Georgian inn. A quiet little market town, which becomes busy during its annual sheep auctions held from August - October.

At Craven Arms you will find "something old and something new" - Something old, is Stokesay Castle a lovely old fortified manor house, one of the finest in England, set in a landscape of wooded hills. Built in 1280 by Laurence de Ludlow, and beautifully preserved, it has two stone towers joined by a gabled banqueting hall, with high gothic windows.

Something new, is Shropshire's Newest Attraction - Secret Hills. Secret Hills, the brand new Shropshire Hills Discovery Centre, opened at Easter 2000. This is the only Millennium project between Birmingham and the Welsh coast. An imaginative grass-roofed building shaped to reflect the surrounding landscape.

Here you will discover the mystery and romantic beauty of Caer Caradoc, Wenlock Edge, the Wrekin and Ragleth Hill - those "blue remembered hills" which inspired A.E. Housman, Mary Webb and Malcolm Saville.
