About the neighbourhood
The Old Forge Holiday Barn and B & B has the convenience of a quiet local pub next door, the Bradford Arms which serves good quality food and traditional cask ales from midday. There is also an Indian Restaurant and Takeaway, a Chinese Restaurant and Takeaway and another pub, The Three Pigeons, which has a separate restaurant which also serves good, quality food, all about two miles away Places of interest that you may like to visit on your stay include Powis Castle, Chirk Castle, Erddig, near Wrexham and Attingham Park, near Shrewsbury (all National Trust Properties). There is also another Castle in Shrewsbury (about 15 miles away) which is now a Military Museum. Liverpool, with the Albert Docks and Beatles Museums is about 90 minutes by car or you could catch a train which takes you into the heart of the City Other places of interest include: Offa's Dyke; the Heritage Area at Llanymynech; Lake Vyrnwy; Llanraeadr Waterfall; Pontcysyllte Aqueduct World Heritage Site; Ellesmere Lakes; Llangollen (Canal and Steam Railway); Welshpool and Llanfair Caereinion Narrow Gauge Steam Railway and Ironbridge Museums including Blists Hill Victorian Town. The Old Forge Holiday Barn and B & B is located in the village of Knockin half-way between Shrewsbury and Oswestry in Shropshire. In the village, part of which is in a conservation area, there is a convenience store (The Knockin Shop), post office and church with numerous eating places just a short journey away. There is an area by the stream that was once used as a sheep dip. The parish church of St Mary at Knockin was founded by Ralph Le Strange between 1182 and 1195. Knockin is the home of Knockin & Kinnerley Cricket Club. Established as a club in 1862 the club currently fields 3 Saturday teams, a Sunday Friendly XI and also a Midweek team. Knockin plays host to a radio telescope that forms a part of MERLIN (Multi-Element Radio Linked Interferometer Network) a Joderal Bank initiative linking six observation stations that together form a powerful telescope. Knockin is a very friendly village with many characters that form part of the village life. Coming from the Shrewsbury side, as you either drive, cycle or walk through the village, you will be greeted by the lovely avenue of trees which is particularly beautiful in spring when thousands of daffodils adorn the sides of the road. Going through the village, it would be difficult to spot two houses that look the same, each with their own piece of history through many hundreds of years. Some two miles away you can hire a rowing boat on the local canal which about three years ago was used by Harrison Ford (famous American actor) when he hired a barge for a vacation.
