There is much more to do here than make boxes. We are in wonderul rural surroundings right in the middle of the Shropshire Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, midway between Wenlock Edge and The Long Mynd. There are wonderful walks, excellent pubs, gliding, paragliding and plenty else to see and do. The popular BBC2 series ‘Victorian Farm’ was filmed here, and the famous Acton Scott Farm Museum is open from April 7th. The historic towns of Shrewsbury, Bishop’s Castle, Much Wenlock and Ludlow are all within easy reach.

For more images of the immediate area try a Google image search for Wenlock EdgeLong Mynd and Cardingmill Valley, all of which are very close. I will shortly be adding more info to this page – for now scroll down for a few pics, a bit of info – and lots of links to excellent websites about the wonderful county of Shropshire:

Acton Scott – the estate where we live and where my workshop is. It’s also where the popular BBC2 programme, ‘Victorian Farm‘ was filmed – much of it outside our kitchen window.
There are many excellent pubs in the area.
This is one of the very best, the Royal Oak at Cardington
The wonderful Stokesay Castle
just 10 mins from us
Acton Scott Historic Working Farm

Right on our doorstep. I will soon be adding a page devoted to this unique and fascinating farm.
This is part of the Long Mynd just behind Church Stretton, complete with part of the herd of wild horses who live here. This is about 15 mins from the workshop – it’s not snow covered all the time …

This extraordinary yew hedge at Brampton Bryan is well worth a visit
Ludlow – a very foody and crafty place which reputedly has more Michelin starred restaurants than anywhere in the UK except London. It has a wonderful food festival, a castle, a racecourse and much more …
Much Wenlock

Shrewsbury – pronounced ‘Shoesbury’ by those that know. The Shropshire county capital

Bishop’s Castle
