Things to do in Rushbury, Shropshire
The village of Rushbury lies in Apedale below the ridge of Wenlock Edge. It has a 19th century school, a half-timbered manor house, the earthworks of a Norman castle and an ancient church with Saxon "herringbone" masonry and Early English chancel.
It is a good starting point for a ramble along Wenlock Edge, immortalised by A. E. Housman in "A Shropshire Lad", to the delightful town of Much Wenlock. The route passes Wilderhope Manor, a historic building belonging to the National Trust and operated as a Youth Hostel.
