Church Stretton is a picturesque market town in Shropshire, England. The town sits between the Long Mynd and Wenlock Edge on the A49 road approximately 13 miles (21 km) south of Shrewsbury, and 15 miles (24 km) north of Ludlow. Shropshire is renowned for its rolling hills and Church Stretton is perfectly placed to take full advantage of this perfect walking countryside, indeed, the town was nicknamed Little Switzerland during the Victorian and Edwardian periods, due to its landscape and development as a health resort.
The historic core of the town lies around St Laurence's Church and along the High Street. With the building of the railway line and station in 1852, the town began to grow towards the new station, along Sandford Avenue. Today the two main streets of the town centre are the High Street and Sandford Avenue. ....
