Much Wenlock is a medieval market town in Shropshire, once home to Dr William Penny Brookes who was the founding father of the modern Olympic Games. One of the mascots at London 2012 was named Wenlock in recognition of the town's sporting heritage.
This gallery of pictures shows some of Much Wenlock's many attractions, which include the remains of a 12th century priory, dedicated to St Milburga, and a covered 16th century guildhall which hosts regular antiques markets.
Back Lane is home to many historic buildings, including St Owen's Well House, a cruck-framed cottage dedicated to the 6th century Welsh saint.
The town's Holy Trinity Church is Norman and boasts a battlemented tower and Jacobean pulpit with carved panels.
In nearby Church Green there is a plaque to local author Mary Webb whose book, Gone to Earth, was made into a major film in 1950. Several scenes were shot in the town, using local people as extras.
