What is Craven Arms Known For

Craven Arms is a market town and civil parish situated in Shropshire, linked to larger towns around it via the Welsh Marches railway line, which joins the Heart of Wales railway line at the Craven Arms railway station. At the north of the town sits the Shropshire Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, and to the south sits the fortified manor house of Stokesay Castle. The surrounding rural area of Craven Arms holds a number of shops, industrial businesses, and an abattoir, and is a highly popular tourist destination due to its stunning scenes of nature.

The town is relatively new for Shropshire, having been just a small village called Newton on a 1695 map. It began to grow when the railway station came into play during the 19th century, making it a railway town. Newton, or Newtown, remains as the name for the southeastern part of the present day town, while the northern part is called Newington or New Inn.

Craven Arms takes its name from the Craven Arms Hotel, which in turn was named after the Lords Craven, who owned the nearby Stokesay Castle. The civil parish of Craven Arms was formed during 1987 through the merging of two older parishes, Stokesay and Halford.

The civil parish is home to many beautiful attractions, such as the Shropshire Hills Discovery Centre which features exhibits about the county’s geography, as well as Stella Mitchell’s Land of Lost Content Museum, a collection of 20th-century memorabilia. There is also Stokesay Castle, a fortified manor house which sits just south of the town.

Craven Arms houses several churches, with the Anglican parish church being the grade II listed church of St Thomas. The grade I listed church of St John is in the south of the town, near Stokesay Castle, and there is also St Andrews Community Church, a Methodist church, a Jehovah's Witnesses Kingdom Hall, and a small mosque.

Taybar's SIA Certified Security Guards in Craven Arms

All our security officers go through a rigorous recruitment and training process to ensure that we maintain the highest level security service standards. Each member of the security team is fully vetted, holds an SIA (Security Industry Authority) licence, has a required minimum of five years working history with Keyholding and Alarm Response services, and undergoes a detailed background check when they come onboard. Our security officers are constantly supported with learning and development to ensure we remain knowledgeable, competent, and relevant in an ever-changing environment.

We always employ local security staff to ensure we can provide local knowledge, boost local employment, and deliver rapid responses. All our security officers will be uniformed, well presented and courteous in line with our values as well as your expectations. All of Taybar Security’s services are audited and assessed by the National Security Inspectorate (NSI) against best practices and industry benchmarks for excellence. We are also registered with the NSI directly and are certified under their Guarding Gold scheme, the organisation’s highest certification tier that combines ISO9001 accreditation and Product Certification of our related security services.

Why Trust Taybar Security

Taybar Security is an SIA (Security Industry Authority) approved contractor, meaning we hold a licence that officially permits us to work in security-related matters. The SIA is a statutory organisation responsible for regulating the private security sector within the UK. Before the SIA licence was introduced in 2004 there was no national licensing system existing within the security industry, meaning local councils had to individually licence people themselves to undergo security work without crucial background or experience checks.

The SIA licence has given countless professionals in the industry a chance to establish themselves and sift out any unsuitable employees, raising the standards of the security sector and maintaining the utmost safety for those in need. You can rest assured that our security services will always come with properly vetted and approved SIA licensed personnel to give you the safety your venue or event deserves.
