Craven Arms is located in South Shropshire on the main A49 Shrewsbury to Ludlow road. The name originates from the 17th century Craven Arms Inn and it was the creation of a major railway junction that stimulated growth of the settlement in Victorian times.
Nearby you will find the stunningly beautiful Stokesay Castle and the Shropshire Hills Discovery Centre is just a short walk from the town centre.
In the town you will find the quirky, but highly entertaining Museum of Lost Content.
