Where? ….. The borderlands of England & Wales – half way between Hereford & Shrewsbury, near Ludlow. Its called Mortimer Country, because nearly 700 years ago the countryside was ruled by the Mortimer family, who kept the populace under control by building lots of castles & fighting all comers – from the Welsh to the English. Fortunately they’ve stopped fighting – its now an unspoilt corner of the country – absolutely perfect for cycling on one of our cycle tours or exploring by foot on The Mortimer Trail.
