Much Wenlock

Much Wenlock, earlier known as Wenlock, is a small town in central Shropshire, England. It is situated on the A458 road between Shrewsbury and Bridgnorth. Nearby, to the northeast, is the Ironbridge Gorge, and the new town of Telford. The town holds the Wenlock Olympian Games set up by Dr William Penny Brookes in 1850. Dr Brookes is credited as a founding father of the Modern Olympic Games, and the Olympic mascot for London 2012 is named Wenlock after the town.

Much Wenlock is a 45 minute drive from Sweeney Hall Hotel.
