Bisected by the River Clun the village of Clun in South Shropshire was first settled during Saxon Times and its location meant that it grew in importance as it was part of the drovers route from Wales to England when livestock was taken from the Welsh Hills to the markets in England. Overlooking the town are the remains of Clun Castle with the River Clun running past it, the castle dates back to Norman times offering some splendid views, the castle was important in controlling access to the Midlands but fell into disrepair somewhere around the early 15th century. Today all that remains are the ruins of the keep atop a motte and part of the hall. As well as the castle there is also its church and Clun Town Hall, an 18th century building, which on the ground floor houses the museum containing many local artefacts. Crossing the River Clun is its 15th century packhorse bridge dividing the older part of the town, to the south, from the more recent Norman part to the north. The village of Clun is an interesting and surprising place, set in the heart of the Shropshire countryside its architecture and location mean that for the tourist it is a joy to visit especially if you find yourself here around the first May Bank Holiday when the villagers celebrate the Green Man Festival, providing live music and drama - it is well worth seeing.
