Location Feature – Bromlow Callow, Shropshire


This location feature is an add-on to the Rorrington Hillfort location features. Bromlow Callow was mentioned in the previous post and is located nearby. As you can see in the video, it looks like a crown of trees on a slope. This view is from the Rorrington Trail. However, from the Shropshire plain, Bromlow Callow is a very prominent landmark. In fact, it was used as marker for a drovers trail for years and years (however, I was told that the trees you can see in the video were planted relatively recently!)

The view from this location itself is superb, making it an excellent look-out position. Consequently, it features in the novel as an Observation Point. Its well worth a visit if you are ever in this neck of the woods. There are public footpaths and CROW access up to the Callow from the road, and there is some parking there (but please exercise some caution and remember to close gates, keep dogs on a lead etc.) Also, there's a great country pub down the road as well if you get chance to drop in (called 'The Callow', of course!)

Until the next time…

About Owen Law

My pen-name is ‘Owen Law’ (real name: Nicholas Davies.) I’m a science fiction writer specialising in dystopian/apocalyptic visions of the future. I’m from Shropshire, England (on the borders with Wales) and I’m in my forties. I have a background in public services and training. I’ve been working on my first novel, Dragon Line, since 2008. I’ve also written several short stories, one of which you can find on this blog (‘Matilda Leviathan‘). I now reside on the border of Shropshire and Wales, and my interests include writing (of course!), current affairs and environmental issues.
