| Events in Cleobury Mortimer | 10 Places to Stay

Cleobury Mortimer, Shropshire, lies about halfway between Kidderminster and Ludlow on the A4117 and takes it name, so it has been suggested, from the nearby Clee Hills and a certain Ralph de Mortimer who was present at the Battle of Hastings, later on he was sent to subdue the Earl of Shrewsbury and in doing so got the Earl’s estate and made Cleobury his principal residence subsequently giving his name to the town, or as some would have you believe this large village. The Mortimers were proud of their heritage and despite several attempts to take control of the family and it wealth they remained in power in the area until the mid 15th century. The economic growth of the area though is probably as a direct result of the diligence and hardwork of its residents rather than the lord of the manor. Cleobury Mortimer grew in importance as an exporter of wooden bowls. Coal, iron and stone were all to be found in the area and apparently paper making could be added to their list of exports. All this has helped shape the future of Cleobury Mortimer so that what you see today is a picturesque town with a mix of architecture from half timbered through to Georgian and Victorian however the centre piece must surely be the parish church. The present church dates back to the 12th century and its most notable feature is its spire which whilst constructed out of oak beams has, through time warped creating a marvellously crooked spire. This is what you would imagine of you were to picture the archetypical Shropshire town, a tranquil atmosphere that offers a range of traditional shops surrounded by some quite picturesque countryside.
