What's going on?

Haughmond Hill: Is owned by The de Quincey family and leased to Forestry England. The hill provides sanctuary for an abundance of leisure activities … walkers, dog walking, mountain biking and horse riders, use the hill daily. Overlooking the beautiful town of Shrewsbury and beyond. It is rumoured that Queen Eleanor's Bower, which was a fort on the hill was the location in which the wife of Henry IV of England supposedly, watched the battle of Shrewsbury’s progress. The "bosky hill" which is mentioned in Act V Scene of Shakespeare's Henry IV part 1 is almost certainly Haughmond, which looms to the east of the battlefield. Today locals and people from further afield, flock to the beautiful woods and you can see why! #SCEcommunity #SCEbeauty #History ... See MoreSee Less
