Church Stretton is a small town in Shropshire, England, 13 miles (21 km) south of Shrewsbury and 15 miles (24 km) north of Ludlow. The population in 2011 was 4,671.
The village barely qualifies as such since it possesses no public house, post office, shop or church. However, it does have a thriving village hall and activities centred on it. The village holds a very traditional fete on the first Saturday of June each year. The village and its community was transformed and brought bouncing back to life in the mid 1970s by the arrival of new families to the parish. It is safe to say, many children of the time would proclaim that Ticklerton had one of the greatest youth clubs and discos, which drew children from many surrounding parishes. This was notably driven by the compassion of William and Judith Shaw, who loved family and village life (Ticklerton Hall 1973-2008).
