Make certain to look up and see Cleobury’s St. Mary’s Church has a crooked spire and walls that lean at an alarming angle, whilst the street curves gently down to the River Rea. Cleobury Mortimer’s High Street was once described by English poet Sir John Betjeman (who we are certain, never had a static caravan at Lodge Coppice) as “A long airy curving street of brick Georgian houses and shops in dispersed with genuine half-timbered houses, the Rea brook making a splash at the bottom of the hill.”

Postman Pat…had nothing on Simon Evans

Near St. Mary’s Church the start of a published walk, the Simon Evans Way, which follows the footsteps of a writer and broadcaster who was once the postman in Cleobury Mortimer. Seventy years ago, Simon Evans who had been gassed and wounded in WWI, was prescribed “a little walking to strengthen my weakened legs and fresh air … to strengthen my lungs.” Such a shame Simon wouldn’t have known the team at Lodge Coppice. He carried the mail over 75,000 miles around Cleobury Mortimer. His books and broadcasts on the wireless captured the charm of the town and in particular of his ‘round’, along the River Rea. The Simon Evans Way traces his route and twists and turns along the meanders of the beautiful river Rea to form a figure of eight from the old post office, up and down the valley.

Static Caravan owners visit St. Mary’s Church – Cleobury Mortimer

Don’t miss the crooked steeple of St. Mary’s. The church originally dates from the 12th century and has a 16th century octagonal wooden spire which over time has gained its twisted appearance.

The interior is not for those of nervous disposition with Betjemen (another non static caravan owner) observing: “The whole church seems to have slipped out of shape. Inside there isn’t a straight arch or doorway.” The local guide explains: “A prominent feature is the leaning of the walls and pillars, probably resulting from a combination of a badly tied roof at one period and ground movement” but local hero Thomas Telford (now it is believed, TT did have the desire to own a static caravan at Lodge Coppice), one of England’s most famous engineers, stabilised the building in 1790.
