Solicitor in Cleobury Mortimer
The town of Cleobury Mortimer is located in the south east of the Shropshire county in England and it is one of the smallest towns in the county. Cleobury Mortimer was named after a medieval Marcher Lord of the same name and it is the location of a series of interesting features and historic landmarks including the St Mary’s Church.
St Mary’s Church is found in the centre of town and dates back to the 12th century. It is known for its crooked or twisted spire that came about as a result of the oak timbers inside of it warping and the base of the spire being rotted over time due to moisture. It has been compared to the leaning tower of Pisa and the inside of the church is similarly unusual with every arch, wall and doorway having slipped from its original straight shape. The walls appear to lean which it is thought to have come from a badly tied roof and ground movement in a certain period. The building was stabilised in 1790 by one of the nation’s most famous engineers, Thomas Telford.
When you have finished seeing the church, cross the road the local spring, The Wells, this spring has served the town for centuries as its main water supply. Also, the Market Hall located to the west of the church is worth a visit and has been recently refurbished. Another feature of the town is the High Street that has been described as being a long curving street of brick Georgian houses and shops with the Rea brook “making a splash” at the bottom of the High Street hill. Ale lovers should visit the Hobson’s Brewery where you can try some of the best ales in Shropshire. At the top of Clee Hill you can find Shropshire brown loaves and cakes, the bakery is considered the highest bakery in Shropshire as Clee Hill stretches quite high. A great way to see the town is to go on a guided walk and there are several organisations that organise walks such as the Kinlet Countryside Group, Stotty Strollers and the Cleobury Mortimer Footpath Association.
