Ludlow Shropshire
Ludlow has a lively market, food fairs, speciality food shops and more restaurants and Inns than you can shake a cocktail stick at. Described by John Betjeman as "the loveliest town in England" and by Country Life as "the most vibrant small town in the Country", Ludlow has more Michellin Starred restaurants than any other town in the country.

Bewdley Worcestershire
The bulk of Bewdley town is situated on the western bank of the River Severn, including the main street - Load Street - whose name derives from lode, an old word for ferry. Load Street is notable for its width: this is because it once also served as the town's market place. Most of Bewdley's shops and amenities are situated along Load Street, at the top of which lies St Anne's Church, built between 1745 and 1748 by Thomas Woodward of Chipping Campden.

Bridgnorth Shropshire
Bridgnorth is split into Low Town and High Town, named on account of their elevations relative to the River Severn, which separates the upper town on the right bank from the lower on the left
