Shropshire is overflowing with beautiful towns and fantastic places to visit, but don’t just take our word for it…

The Countryfile Magazine Awards have been launched and our local town of Church Stretton (just 4 miles away) has been nominated for ‘Britain’s Favourite Market Town’, while Stokesay Castle (just 8 miles away) is up for ‘Britain’s Favourite Heritage Site’ and has been described as “One of England’s first and finest medieval fortified manor houses.”

These are the third annual Countryfile Magazine Awards and are held to celebrate all the good things about the British countryside. Last year our nearby ‘foodie’ town of Ludlow (12 miles away) came second in ‘Britain’s Favourite Market Town’.

Voting closes on 30th September 2013
