Leintwardine - Roman village and The Sun Inn

Leintwardine North Herefordshire west of Ludlow

This thriving Roman Village set on the borders between Shropshire & Herefordshire lies at the confluence of the Rivers Clun and Teme just 7 miles west of Ludlow. The population of around 1000 supports a remarkably large number of small businesses ranging from hotels and inns to a coracle maker.

The modern village is sited around the Roman settlement of Bravonium and Watling street.  No visible signs – but the Roman fort was in Jay Lane and baths under the garage! Any development within the conservation area is carefully controlled.
