Furthermore, the railway station was located within walking distance as were plenty of shopping and dining options. Theatregoers loved being just steps away from Theatre Severn for live entertainment. Lovers of the great outdoors appreciated the proximity of the scenic Shropshire Hills, a paradise for walking and cycling. The on-site parking was a plus for motorists.
