Just read your message today, 7/19/02.i have been to Farlow, England, twice - in 1991 and again in 1995 or 6.It has been separated into two individual hamlets.Upper Farlow is on a high hill overlooking lower Farlow.At one time, they were connected, but the area between has been returned to farm land.We have visited the school in Upper Farlow - a small, very small elementary school. There is also a church, with cemetary,and a few houses - probably 6 or 8. Lower Farlow has a very small combination post office, pharmacy with no pharmacist, and limited groceries and sundries.There are the remains of a community well a short distance from this combination store, post office, etc.Here, too, there are a very few houses.
The road into Farlow is so narrow, although paved, that shrubbery on both sides of the road scraped our vehicle.Passing is an ordeal - there are cut-outs occasionally along the road, and one of the drivers has to pull into this cut-out in order for the other to pass.Farlow is located in Shropshire, approximately 35-40 miles from Telford, and perhaps ten miles from the border of Wales to the west.
We became acquainted with a Farlow family from Telford and they have visited us twice.We have been to Telford three times.On one of our visits, we spent three weeks traveling with these Farlow friends - all around England and into Wales.
If you have any other questions, please don't hesitate to ask.
