Harmer Hill, Shropshire

Harmer Hill is a village in Shropshire, England on the A528 south of Wem and north of Shrewsbury.

The village is home to two pubs, The Bridgewater Arms and the Red Castle. There is a village hall and chapel. Harmer Hill has many apparent Ghosts, including the "White Lady".
