Ternhill, Shropshire

Ternhill is a village in Shropshire, England, notable for its Royal Air Force training airfield which was the site of a bombing by the Provisional IRA on 20 February 1989 in which one person was injured. Today the station is named after Clive of India and the River Tern which begins just south of the settlement. The A41 and A53 cross over at the village and there is now a roundabout. It has direct links with major towns and cities such as Shrewsbury, Wolverhampton, Stoke-on-Trent and Chester.
