Sitting on the north tip of historic Wenlock Edge, Much Wenlock is a medieval market town that lies on the way to Bridgnorth from Ironbridge.
It's now gaining celebrity status too with the Olympic mascot "Wenlock", being named after it, as it’s the birthplace of the man who inspired Baron de Coubertain to re-launch the modern Olympic games that we know today.
