The Crown, Munslow
|Post town:||Church Stretton|
Munslow is a small village in the heart of Shropshire. It stands amongst the hills above Corvedale, six and a half miles northeast of the small town of Craven Arms. The village has given its name to the Munslow Hundred.
Munslow is on the north side of Corvedale, a fine place (and declared an "area of outstanding natural beauty") in the midst of southern Shropshire, though at the edge, for the village is built where the slope of the Wenlock Edge suddenly rises. The nearest sizeable town is Church Stretton, 5½ miles off, while Craven Arms is to the west.
Running through the village is the small stream 'Corve brook'. This flows into the larger River Corve to the south of the village.
Munslow is a sparsely spread village. At the centre of the village there is a large Second World War memorial, a village notice board, an antiquated water trough and a post box.
The Parish church is dedicated to Saint Michael. It dates from the 12th century.
About the village
Munslow is a small place with only three businesses: The Crown Country Inn, the Coseley House and the Crown Garage.
Munslow has not barged into the history books, but it is in itself a historic village and has over 29 houses listed Grade II or above. The church is a historic focal point for Munslow, containing volumes of parish records and registers dating back to the 16th century. 
The Crown Country Inn is in the extreme south end of the village and was formerly the 'Hundred House'; the meeting place for the justices of the Munslow Hundred. The 'Hundred House' acted as a courthouse for the area around the 17th century. As the village pub today, it is a hub of the community. The building itself is Grade II listed and comprises architecture ranging from the 17th through the 19th centuries.
The village does not have a post office, but one is located in the nearby village of Aston Munslow a mile away.
Broadstone is higher up Corvedale, and standing by the Corve itself.
Upper Millichope is a hamlet above Munslow, on a bourn which runs down off Wenlock Edge to the Corve at Millichope Park, immediately east of Munslow.
