Heading west from Craven Arms, through the villages of the Clun Valley, visitors can enjoy the outstanding scenery from many vantage points along the lanes, footpaths and bridleways. The views from the triangulation point at the site of the Bury Ditches Hill Fort are spectacular. Walk amongst the remains of Clun Castle and enjoy further views of the upper Clun Valley. Also in Clun, you can linger by the C14th packhorse bridge – but don’t feed the ducks as they’re fat enough already! The town’s museum is also worth a visit. Clun Museum¬†houses a multitude of local historical and agricultural artefacts and possesses an important collection of flints. The two silver maces of the Borough of Clun, dating back to Elizabethan times (1580 & 1620) together with the Seal (1637) are displayed on Bank Holidays.

A number of previously uninhabited estate properties have been finely restored. Acton Scott was the film location for a prime time BBC2 Television series, ‘Victorian Farm’, on air in 2009 . It followed a team of historians who spent a year recreating rural life as it might have been in 1885.Within easy reach of the site is Acton Scott, a well known Historic Working Farm, open to the public from April to November.
