Much Wenlock holds a well kept secret ! Its where William Penny Brookes a local visionary and " Keep Fit" Fanatic started what we now recognise as the Modern Olympic Games, way back in 1850 in Much Wenlock, before his work led to the first Modern Olympic Games in Paris in 1896, but sadly he died the year before. He and his Family are buried in the old Church, which is well worth a visit and is nearly 1000 years old in parts, near the Priory.
